Superstition Vistas Multimodal Transportation Planning Study

Study Objectives

The objective of the Superstition Vistas Multimodal Transportation Planning Study (SVMTPS) is to develop a coordinated vision of a multimodal transportation network across jurisdictions that enhances the mobility and accessibility of people and goods to and within the study area for the near-term (2030) and long-term (2050) horizons. The transportation network and service alternatives and recommendations will build upon:

  1. Existing needs
  2. Anticipated growth and development
  3. Planned roadway extensions
  4. Existing and planned energy and water infrastructure systems
  5. Land use plans
  6. Travel demand modeling
  7. A shared vision amongst stakeholders
