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.
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.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS SINCE THE 2005 CTP INCLUDE:
Active Transportation (adopted in 2014) includes the following projects:
Arterials, Highways, and Freeways Element (adopted June 13, 2018):
**UPDATE JUNE 2018** The Arterials, Highways, and Freeways Element has been adopted by the STA Board. Find the final version of the document here.
