SRTC Board Meets Thursday, April 11

SRTC's monthly Policy Board meeting is next Thursday, April 11 at 1 p.m. The agenda is here. This could be an interesting one because the Board will be discussing indepth the draft first three chapters of Horizon 2040, our Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). The plan includes information on the current state of the regional transportation system, such as pavement condition and how much it would cost to bring it up to a "good" state of repair. Considering that there's not enough money to fix everything, it could be interesting to hear Board members' reactions to that and how they propose to spread the money there is around.
