MassDOT is leading the nation in how we think about the intersection between health and transportation. The award winning Healthy Transportation Compact, created as part of 2009 Transportation Reform signed by Governor Deval Patrick, is a multi-state agency collaboration to balance all transportation modes, expand mobility, improve health, support a cleaner environment, and create stronger communities.
These ideals coupled with expertise fostered through the Compact partnership are helping to inform other MassDOT initiatives, in particular our emphasis on performance-based planning. MassDOT is working with our partners to ensure health goals are considered in all of our work, including weMove Massachsuetts, our capital planning process and scenario planning tool supporting our Capital Investment Program, as well as the Project Selection Advisory Council working to develop methods for setting project priorities.
To learn more about the Healthy Transportation Compact and the work that MassDOT is doing to support health, we welcome you to attend a Healthy Transportation Compact Public Meeting:
Wednesday, August 20th, 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., State Transportation Building, 10 Park Plaza, 2nd floor, Conference Room 1, Boston
