Purpose & Need

The West Plains Sub-Area Transportation Management Plan Phase 1, US 2 Vicinity, focuses on land use and multimodal transportation in and around the US 2 corridor. Previous transportation studies have identified congestion and safety concerns around US 2, and a need for additional parallel transportation options for all users.

The West Plains Subarea Transportation Management Plan will:

  • refine past studies,
  • evaluate current and future land use and transportation conditions,
  • propose “practical solution” strategies that will provide for the evolving transportation needs
