FHWA Transportation Planning Info Exchange Webinar: Regional Models of Cooperation

January 27, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Issues like air pollution and traffic congestion do not stop at State Department of Transportation (State DOT) or Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) boundaries, but planning often does.  Planning in jurisdictional silos can interfere with essential coordination of regional transportation planning solutions, which can lead to project delays, process inconsistencies, and reduced system reliability.  An enhanced process for effective communication used by State DOTs, MPOs, and transit authorities can result in improved collaboration.  Using regional models of cooperation requires thinking beyond traditional borders and brings together many entities to support common goals on transportation planning topics such as congestion management, safety, freight, livability and commerce.  The presentation and discussion will be followed by a question and answer session through the chat pod and over the phone.  If you have specific questions that you would like to submit to the presenters in advance of the webinar, please send them to Jody McCullough at [email protected] or Dwayne Weeks at [email protected].
