Priority Network Maps

CDTC has been utilizing priority networks in planning and project programming since they were originally developed by New Visions task forces for the 1997 regional transportation plan. Priority Networks exist for bicyclists and pedestrians, freight, intelligent transportation systems and transit. These networks are used in CDTC’s merit evaluation of Transportation Improvement Program project proposals and improvements to them are made as described in the white papers for each topic supporting New Visions 2040.
