Miami-Dade 2040 LRTP - Oct. 23, 2014

MIAMI-DADE LONG RANGE TRANSPORTATION PLAN UPDATE TO THE YEAR 2040 Chapter 3 | Connecting the Dots EYES ON THE FUTURE | 3-11 The tools utilized to meet the federal and state requirements and develop an equitable and effective transportation plan can be classified in three broad categories. The first category is Community Interface , which encompasses the process by which community and stakeholder input is collected and disseminated for consideration in the plan. The second category is Forecasting , which involves the simulation and analysis of future conditions, both with respect to the demand on the transportation system and the supply of transportation infrastructure to meet that demand. The third and final category is Performance Measurement , which consists of the application of measureable criteria to assess the need and value of individual transportation improvements and the performance of the system as a whole.
