Roads + Highways

Even though a number of different transpor­tation modes are available, travel to, from and within the region predominately involves use of the highway network.

The street system is used not only by persons in private vehicles but also by local bus operators, bicyclists and for the movement of freight and goods. Because of this almost universal use of the highways, it is critically important that the network function at an acceptable level of service with minimal congestion and provide optimal safety.
