The completion of this study represents the first step in providing quality information
identifying the local streets and roads needs statewide. Sustaining this effort will be very important. To
be successful in conveying our message a consistent systematic approach in determining the needs must be in
The Oversight Committee has developed an outreach/communications action plan that will convey the results of
this study to the public, media, local and regional agency officials, State Legislature, and the Governor.
Although the State’s finances are at a point where obtaining additional transportation dollars to address
these needs may be difficult, the prospects of having our already insufficient local road funds reallocated
to address the state’s budget woes is a very real concern. The information from this study will hopefully
not only be helpful in preventing this from happening but will establish in the decision makers minds the need
for more transportation funding for local streets and roads. The outreach plan will involve agency officials
presenting the study’s findings to their local elected officials.
