Building Great Transportation Infrastructure: A Toolkit on How to Plan, Fund, Deliver, and Maintain a Transportation System
A Guide to Building Great Transportation Infrastructure
The Building Great Transportation Infrastructure toolkit provides an overview of the transportation process and follows four main steps: PLAN, FUND, DELIVER, and MAINTAIN. It is an ongoing, cyclical process with public engagement at the core of every step.
- During PLAN, governments work with the public and other stakeholders to develop a vision and goals for the transportation system, identify project ideas to achieve the vision and goals, and select a set of projects to fund.
- During FUND, governments secure funding and/or financing to pay for the costs of analyzing, designing, and constructing the projects.
- During DELIVER, governments use an open and public process to analyze the impacts that a project might have on the environment and mitigate those impacts, design the project to meet the needs of the community, and construct the project.
- During MAINTAIN, governments operate the completed transportation infrastructure, maintain it to keep it in good working form, and monitor the use and condition of the infrastructure.
