1. YOUR COMMENTS on the draft "On the Move" 2015-2045 Plan project list:

Image

Why plan? We are creating the “On the Move” transportation plan because:
 It's required — so our region can get federal funds to improve roads, bridges, bike paths, public transit, etc.
 It helps us set goals and choose the most important projects.

What’s in the draft plan?
 There are 154 “priority” projects (ones we expect we can fund) in the draft plan.
 The plan will include “committed” projects (already funded) and a reserve list (good projects, but we don’t think we can fund them).
 To see the plan: visit www.tmacog.org (click “On the Move”) or contact TMACOG for a copy.

Do you agree with the “On the Move” 2015-2045 Plan? Please provide your comments!

We propose to spend about 74% on expressways, roads and bridges, and 26% on other modes like railroad overpasses, public transit, and bikeways.

* 1. If YOU could budget the region’s transportation dollars, how would you spend them? (Check one)

* 2. I think we should invest more in: (mark these 1 most important, through 7 least important)

* 3. How do YOU get where you want to go? (write 1 for most often, and 2 for second choice)

* 4. How well does the Plan address our regional goals?

Safety goal.

The 2045 Plan will:
• Improve road intersections and expressway interchanges
• Build railroad overpasses
• Do roadway safety studies
• Make roads safer for bicyclists and pedestrian

I agree: The Plan will improve SAFETY in our region

* 5. Personal mobility goal.

The 2045 Plan will:
• Create a regional bikeway network
• Improve public transit (examples: Lucas County-wide system; BG-Toledo connection; a one-call center; and “bus rapid transit” in a major corridor)
• Add passenger rail service – more trains connecting to more cities

I agree: The Plan will improve PERSONAL MOBILITY in our region

* 6. Infrastructure condition goal.

The 2045 Plan calls for:
• $550 million to rehab or rebuild roads and bridges that are in bad shape
• More than 100 Priority Projects that fix, replace, or upgrade existing bridges and roads
• Better maintenance and sidewalk snow removal

I agree: The Plan will improve INFRASTRUCTURE CONDITION in our region

* 7. Freight movement goal.

The 2045 Plan will:
• Improve traffic flow on major freight routes– examples: widen interstates; improve pavement
• Improve road connections to major freight routes– examples: improve access to interstates; build railroad overpasses
• Upgrade facilities at the Toledo seaport

I agree: the Plan will improve FREIGHT movement in our region

* 8. Congestion reduction and system reliability goal.

The 2045 Plan will:
• Promote alternative modes of travel to reduce car miles driven
• Add road capacity and reduce bottlenecks
• Reduce roadway delay with projects that improve efficiency and promote free flow

I agree: the Plan will REDUCE CONGESTION in our region

* 9. Environmental sustainability goal.

The 2045 Plan:
• Urges use of green infrastructure to naturally reduce pollution from stormwater
• Protects air quality by improving traffic flow
• Improves access to transit, pedestrian & bicycle transportation
• Urges us to grow smarter by building in existing towns – with mixed use and greater density -- not on green fields

I agree: The Plan will improve the ENVIRONMENT in our region
