Regional Transportation PlanningRegional Transportation Asset Inventory (RTAI)
The RTAI is utilized as a resource document for the entire region while developing goals and objectives for the transportation system, identifying and evaluating needs, reviewing and documenting projects, and throughout the prioritization/ranking process. The RTAI is the “umbrella” that houses data collection components relevant to regional transportation. The RTAI document consists of an introduction for each component detailing the reason for, location maps and what recommendations if any can be construed from existing data and research. It is designed to be multi-modal in nature and address all forms of transportation in the region to include highways, air, river, rail, transit, pedestrian and bicycle.
The purpose is to involve local leaders, public officials, and the general public in the transportation planning process. It is designed to develop a working relationship between local leaders, transportation officials and planners, and concerned citizens, with the goal of creating an open environment, allowing for open and informed public input, so those transportation plans receive local acceptance and support. The elements collected in the RTAI can be used as a means of generating better input from local officials and citizens concerning transportation issues and projects.
