ConnDOT: Norwalk Transportation Management Plan (DOT01020336PE)

 
Norwalk Transportation Management Plan
State Project DOT01020336PE


The Norwalk Transportation Management Plan was undertaken by the City of Norwalk, specifically its Department of Public Works (DPW), in cooperation with the South Western Regional Planning Agency (SWRPA) and the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT). The study was funded utilizing federal Surface Transportation Program funds from the Bridgeport-Stamford urbanized area with local matching funds.

The Plan was intended to provide guidance and direction for the City and provide templates for transportation resources that are planned, designed, and constructed; all with the ultimate goals of:

  • Providing for the safety and convenience of all users of the roadway system including:
    Pedestrians (including those who need assistance with mobility)
    Bicyclists
    Transit Users
    Emergency Service Operators
    Automobile Drivers
    Commercial Vehicle Operations

  • Facilitating multi-modal use of the system.
  • Providing consistency with transportation plans and policies, environmental regulations, the community, the region, the state, and the Federal government.
  • Being cost effective for the fiscally constrained realities of the current times we live in and for setting the groundwork for prioritizing future capital spending.

The purpose of the Transportation Management Plan was twofold:
  • First, to provide designers and decision-makers with a framework for incorporating into the design of transportation facilities multi-modal elements and context sensitive design practices.  The emphasis is to ensure that investments in transportation infrastructure encourages projects that consider the local context while meeting the needs of the city and the people that they serve.
  • Second, to identify specific intersections, corridors, and actions within the city that are in need of  correction or adjustment.  The emphasis is not so much about minor or isolated actions,  but broader adjustments that would benefit the transportation system throughout the city or address well documented barriers to growth and improvement within the City.
