Office of Strategic Planning and Projects

 

The Office of Strategic Planning and Projects is comprised of four units – Intermodal Planning, Research & Performance Management, Statewide Planning & Project Coordination, and Trip and Traffic Analysis.

 

Intermodal Planning performs studies on all modes of transportation, and oversees the Community Connectivity program.  The transportation modes include bicycle, pedestrian, transit, highway, maritime, and freight.  This Unit produces corridor wide needs assessments and alternatives analysis for all modes of transportation, and develops near and long term implementation plans that can guide Connecticut’s transportation infrastructure improvements over the next 20 years.  This unit generates comprehensive, statewide planning documents along with corridor and regional transportation studies.

 

Research & Performance Management prepares and posts the Department’s quarterly performance measures. Prepares and posts the Department’s quarterly performance measures as well as performance measures required for MAP-21. In addition, this Unit develops Department-wide policies, principles and best practice methods for improving resource allocation and utilization decisions.

 

Statewide Planning & Project Coordination performs studies on all modes of transportation, and oversees the Transportation Enhancement and Safe Routes to School programs.  The transportation modes include transit, highway, aviation, maritime, freight, and bicycle and pedestrian.  This Unit produces corridor wide needs assessments and alternatives analysis for all modes of transportation, and develops near and long term implementation plans that can guide Connecticut’s transportation infrastructure improvements over the next 20 years.  The studies produce a set of context sensitive solutions to meet the deficiencies and needs identified in the assessment to ensure that projects are sensitive to the needs of the transportation system as well as the communities that they are part of. 

 

Trip and Traffic Analysis prepares traffic forecasts of travel demand based upon socioeconomic, demographic and transportation system characteristics; analyzes the current and future levels of service/congestion; transit usage; traffic volumes based upon existing and future transportation plans and programs. Reviews Major Traffic Generators (MTG’s) with respect to traffic volumes, trip generation and trip distribution for the Office of the State Traffic Administration (OSTA). Trip and Traffic Analysis also assists in the review of corridor and regional transportation planning studies.
