Solano Comprehensive Transportation Plan Update

CTP 2040 Logo"A hundred years after we are gone and forgotten, those who never heard of us will be living with the results of our actions."

- Oliver Wendell Holmes, U.S. Supreme Court Justice

 The Solano Transportation Authority (STA) is updating the Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP), which identifies and prioritizes the transportation needs and funding throughout Solano County through the year 2040. The current CTP 2030 was finalized in 2005 (see here for additional information).

STA needs your help in updating the CTP. Our goal is to submit a draft plan to the STA Board for approval during 2018.

 

BACKGROUND

Programs and projects for the county and the seven cities must be listed in the STA CTP in order to be eligible for regional, state or federal transportation funds and to be included in the Metropolitan Transportation Commission's (MTC) Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), Plan Bay Area. STA distributes those funds based on the Solano CTP and Plan Bay Area. It is important that every resident of Solano County has the opportunity to have their voice heard in shaping STA's priorities.

Active Transportation (adopted in 2014) includes the following projects:

  • Wilson Avenue Class I Bikeway (multi-use path) along the Mare Island Strait in Vallejo
