  4. 4. Need for New Investment Approach • Nationally: – Transportation funds lagging, at same time that transportation needs have increased – Emphasis on asset management, coupled with less revenue, has serious implications on revenue availability for new infrastructure – Multimodal capital investments must be identified in transparent processes that are performance-driven and outcome-based • In Chattanooga: – Shift to multimodal investment has been limited in its geographic extent – Large areas throughout region remain dangerous to pedestrians and cyclists and inaccessible to transit users
  5. 5. ADA Compliance Multimodal Connections Improved Access Congestion Reduction Chattanooga Bypass Public Transit Safety We heard about many needs and frustrations. Defining tailored solutions that address the many, often-competing needs was the challenge. Intermodal Investment Community Character Tourism High Speed Rail Complete Streets Protecting Chattanooga’s Environmental Resources Health
