Green DOT Transportation Solutions prepared the 2016 Siskiyou County Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and environmental document. The 2016 RTP improved upon past efforts and included updated language to ensure compliance with the 2010 Regional Transportation Plan Guidelines as well as the latest Federal Highway Bill, Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act. This RTP incorporated the latest performance measures applicable to rural counties in California developed in September 2015 in the Transportation Performance Measures for Rural Counties in California report. The 2010 RTP set some tangible baselines that worked in a rural context and this effort has been measuring performance since 2010. To these ends, Green DOT evaluated the value of the performance measures and improved upon them. This included hybrid performance measures developed from the Caltrans Performance Measures for Rural Transportation Systems Guidebook (2006) and the SANDAG Statewide Performance Monitoring Indicators for Transportation Planning (2013) reports.
The RTP identified transportation infrastructure and County needs through 2036. The RTP included updated project lists for the Cities and County and programmed these projects in the short term (0-10 years) and long-term (11-20 years) based on expected funding sources and amounts. The RTP development process included extensive community outreach and stakeholder engagement.
