On September 20, 2017, the Authority approved the 2017 Contra Costa Countywide Transportation Plan (2017 CTP). The CTP is one of the Authority’s key planning tools, designed to “Support efforts to develop and maintain an ongoing planning process with the cities and the county through the funding and development of a Comprehensive Transportation Plan.” It outlines the Authority’s vision for Contra Costa and its transportation system, and establishes goals, and strategies, and specific implementation tasks.
This edition of the CTP builds on plans and policies established with the passage of Measure C in 1988 and renewed with Measure J in 2004. It has been crafted to improve transportation for all members of the community. CCTA aims to connect people with their desired modes of travel so they can get where they need to go safely, efficiently, and cost effectively.
The CTP provides the overall direction for achieving and maintaining a balanced and functional transportation system within Contra Costa, while strengthening links between land use decisions and transportation. The CTP outlines the CCTA’s vision for Contra Costa, and establishes goals, strategies, projects, and actions for achieving that vision. It also includes a Long Range Transportation Investment Program (LRTIP) with $6.4 billion in funding for roadways and High-Occupancy Vehicle facilities, for transit, bicycle, and pedestrian projects and programs, and for underserved communities.
