Goals and Objectives
MAINTAIN A STATE OF GOOD REPAIR
The foundation of any successful transportation plan is a commitment to keep existing roadways, bridges, and transit systems in good operating condition.
Reducing the risk of life, personal injury, and property damage due to traffic incidents is of utmost importance to policymakers. The Plan prioritizes efforts that help reduce crashes even as more people walk, bicycle, drive, and scooter around the region. Often an indicator of economic success, traffic congestion can escalate quickly and hamper quality of life. The Plan takes a balanced approach by alleviating bottlenecks when possible and expanding multimodal options to allow people to move freely despite congestion. The Nashville area is thriving, but economic prosperity is not even. Transportation investments that help attract outside investment should also connect long-time residents to jobs that help lift families out of poverty or allow them in live in the neighborhood of their choice. The Plan embraces continued economic growth but looks to do its part to prevent sacrificing the region’s natural beauty or environmental quality. In addition, the Plan seeks to ensure that benefits gained from investment should be distributed equitably among an increasingly diverse population. Middle Tennesseans expect public agencies to address their challenges by working together across political boundaries and throughout all levels of government. The Plan strives to ensure that plans are coordinated and mutually beneficial.
