Explain how this Project will meet the checked objectives for this goal:
22. Goal 4: Coordinate Transportation Planning with the Natural and Built Environment
Objective 4A: Promote transportation investments that support infill, mixed use development patterns.
Objective 4B: Provide transportation infrastructure design guidance that fits within the context of the built environment.
Objective 4C: Plan for and address multimodal transportation system impacts / sufficiency when planning new developments.
Objective 4D: Minimize the transportation system's impacts on the natural and built environment.
Objective 4E: Ensure that mobility-challenged populations, such as low income, disabled, and senior citizens, have travel options in the
20. Goal 2: Enhance Regional Alternatives to Automobile Travel
Explain how this Project will meet the checked objectives for this goal:
Objective 2A: Improve transit route efficiency, system productivity, and community awareness.
Objective 2B: Improve transit and rideshare opportunities for travelers commuting into Bismarck-Mandan from outside the urban area.
Objective 2C: Ensure reliable public transit service that is easily understandable to the public.
Objective 2D: Create multimodal connections between bicycle, pedestrian, automobile, and transit travel.
Objective 2E: Improve bicycle and pedestrian system accessibility and connectivity opportunities while maintaining safety.
Objective 2F: Improve the awareness and safety of bicycling, and educate both bicyclists and motorists on rules and responsibilities.

25. Goal 7: Identify Transportation-Supportive Funding and Policy Opportunities
Objective 7A: Identify non-traditional funding opportunities to support transportation needs.
27. Is there other information we should know about this project that has not been addressed.
24. Goal 6: Provide a Safe and Secure Transportation System
Explain how this Project will meet the checked objectives for this goal:
Objective 6A: Reduce the incidence of all multi-modal crashes, with an emphasis on serious injury and fatal crashes and crash
Objective 6B: Provide a safe and secure environment for transit system riders.
Objective 6C: Enhance transportation security and reliability by developing strategies to address critical transportation assets
23. Goal 5: Provide a Transportation System that Effectively Moves Goods and Enhances the Local Economy
Explain how this Project will meet the checked objectives for this goal:
Objective 5A: Enhance the efficient and safe movement of freight and goods.
Objective 5B: Manage freight movement's impacts on the community, including addressing the movement of hazardous materials
through the region.
Objective 5C: Promote transportation investments that enhance the local economy.
26. The current financial environment limits our region’s ability to increase roadway capacity through infrastructure enhancement and, as
a result, increases the importance of managing traffic on our current system. The Federal Program TSM&O (Transportation Systems
Management and Operations) strives to increase capacity that can be lost due to congestion, traffic incidents, construction, weather, poor
signalization, etc. Explain if and how this project meets TSM&O objectives.
