tp story image

This plan will help define the future of transportation in the City of Lewiston and the surrounding Area of City Impact.

What is it?

The City of Lewiston 2020 Transportation Plan aims to define the future of transportation in the City of Lewiston and its surrounding Area of City Impact (ACI). The plan will help guide multimodal transportation improvements in Lewiston for the next 20 years by establishing transportation goals and objectives, consolidating projects from other existing transportation plans and studies conducted over the past decade, and identify new projects based on analysis of existing conditions. Three important elements will make up the plan and assist in implementation:

Project Prioritization Criteria (PPC)
The PPC will allow for projects to be prioritized using a transparent process that includes scoring of both quantitative and qualitative criteria. Criteria is being developed based on past public input on transportation in Lewiston and work with community stakeholders.

Transportation Capital Improvement Plan (CIP)
The Transportation CIP applies the PPC process to rank and phase projects, with annual updates to ensure the project list is current, adaptive, and effective.

Public Participation Guide (PPG)
The PPG will define how the public will be involved in shaping the CIP annually. The guide will outline how the City will engage the public and how input will be incorporated. 


What is the current status of the project?

Background information has been collected and reviewed to assist in developing project prioritization criteria and the transportation capital improvement project list. The project team will be meeting in the near future with stakeholders who will advise the City as the PPC and PPG are finalized.
