WSDOT’s Corridor Capacity Report’s ‘Dashboard of Indicators’ presents multimodal system performance measures over a five year period, giving a holistic view of the changes in system conditions. Collaboration with transit, planning and other state agencies is critical for achieving a corridor-based customer focused multimodal performance measurement and analysis that leading to a comprehensive story telling that resonates with WSDOT stakeholders. These corridor snapshots act as a regional dashboard on measures like person miles traveled and annual emissions, as well as digging into metrics for every mode.
What are the implications of MAP-21 newly proposed rules for safety, pavement and bridges? WSDOT has developed a website and folios that share general and technical information intended to enhance the understanding of federal rule making for the general public as well as technical audiences. As proposed rules are released and other rules become finalized, the website will be updated to reflect current information.
