Help SRTC Make Future Funding Decisions

Transportation planning isn't just paving roads. When we're distributing state and federal funds for local construction projects, we base our decisions on safety improvements a project will make, if it will reduce traffic congestion, if it includes bike and pedestrian facilities, and several other factors.

Now we want to know what your priorities are when it comes to transportation projects. Do you prefer ones that improve the condition of the roadway? Or would you rather put more money toward public transit or other areas? 

Please take our web survey to let us know how transportation funding should be divvied up. We will be taking it offline at the end of the year so you only have a couple more weeks. It should take ten minutes, at the most.
