An accompanying report (to be posted when available) provides analysis from the review and summarizes detailed findings. A nine-member project advisory group advised the research team on priority topics of interest for the review of statewide long-range transportation plans. The advisory group included representatives of the Transportation Research Board’s Statewide Multimodal Planning Committee, other State DOTs, and representatives of stakeholder organizations.
