Needs Assessment & Program of Projects

What is the Needs Assessment & Program of Projects?

Norfolk’s Multimodal Transportation Master Plan (MTMP), will also have a focus on implementation through a comprehensive needs assessment for the transportation infrastructure required to achieve a fully integrated multimodal system for the city.

The needs assessment will include proposed multimodal improvement projects, as well graphical text box stating "Multimodal Norfolk will include a detailed list of projects to improve the ways we get around in the city – and will include information on who, when, how and how much it will cost for each project."as operational and maintenance costs. For a near-term (1-6 year), mid-term (7-10 year) and long-term (10 and beyond) timeframe. It will include requirements for new transit, bike and pedestrian infrastructure that supports the proposed citywide plan.

The needs assessment will further be developed into a program of projects that will lead to the implementation of the multimodal transportation plan based on the needs and timeframes identified in the Needs Assessment.  The program of projects will be designed to dovetail with the City’s Capital Improvement Program, repair/replacement schedule, and timeline of other major development or redevelopment initiatives in the City.
