The launch of public engagement efforts for the development of the New York State Transportation Master Plan 2050 were unveiled on Monday. In partnership with transportation agencies across the state, the New York State Department of Transportation is seeking input from the public about how well the transportation system is working today, as well as priorities for the future. A new project website has been launched to help the public to learn more about New York State’s Transportation Master Plan.
According to the state, the Plan will lay out a vision for community-focused transportation with an outlook to 2050. It will identify policies and priorities to support thriving communities, economic vitality, a clean and healthy environment, and other community-based goals. Input from the public is a critical part of the Transportation Master Plan development process. Over the coming months, the public will have multiple opportunities to provide input on goals and priorities to help shape New York State’s transportation future.
Public participation will occur through a diverse range of activities, including surveys, virtual meetings, and events held throughout the state.
