Transportation

trafficTransportation is much more than just getting from point A to point B. It’s the network that ties together our churches, our workplaces, our homes, our schools – linking communities and providing mobility to people and goods throughout the state.

The decisions we make about how to expand our transportation systems to meet growing needs in the next one, five, ten years will have enormous impacts. They will impact our health, environment, economy and quality of life.

The Union of Concerned Scientists identified transportation as the most significant, consumer-related environmental problem. Of great importance is the tremendous contribution that cars and light trucks make to global warming (almost 30 percent of all greenhouse gasses).
