Multimodal Transportation Master Plan
What is the Multimodal Transportation Master Plan?
The Multimodal Norfolk Transportation Master Plan is a plan to expand travel choices for Norfolk’s residents, businesses, and visitors. It's a plan to ensure the city’s transportation investments support its land use and economic development strategies. The plan supports Norfolk’s vision for a safe and prosperous city with a 21st century economy and workforce.
The final Multimodal Transportation Master Plan includes:
- A citywide Multimodal System Plan
- A new Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan that builds on the 2015 Strategic Bike Plan
- A new framework for designing projects on multimodal corridors
- A new process for evaluating projects to reflect the Multimodal Norfolk goals
- A new framework for managing curb space
- Recommendations for evaluating new technology solutions
- A multimodal needs assessment
- A program of projects and resource allocation plan for implementation

What is a Multimodal System Plan?
The first step in the Multimodal Norfolk process was to develop a Multimodal System Plan - a layering of the transportation networks and land uses to understand how they work together as a system. The following videos explain the concepts in a Multimodal System Plan and how the maps for Norfolk’s Multimodal System Plan were developed.
