wemoveLogoMassDOT has released weMove Massachusetts: Planning for Performance (WMM), the Commonwealth’ Long-Range Transportation Plan. The report summarizes MassDOT’s new approach to multimodal capital planning and the use of scenario planning. The Planning for Performance tool can be used to calculate the performance outcomes resulting from different funding levels available to MassDOT. The WMM tool also begins to incorporate MassDOT important policy initiatives such as mode shift and sustainability into the capital planning process.  In the future MassDOT will use the tool to update and refine investment priorities. The performance tool also allows our customers and stakeholders to understand the impacts of investment or disinvestment in our transportation system.

Beginning on January 29, MassDOT will convene a series of six public meetings to present both the weMove Massachusetts report and the MassDOT Capital Investment Plan.  The meetings locations and dates are as follows:

  • Wednesday, January 29, 6:00-8:00pm, State Transportation Building, 2nd Floor, 10 Park Plaza, Boston
  • Wednesday, January 29, 6:00-8:00pm, Union Station, 2 Washington Square, Worcester
  • Monday, February 3, 6:00-8:00pm,  Bangs Community Center, 70 Boltwood Walk, Amherst
  • Monday, February 3, 6:00-8:00pm, Berkshire Athenaeum, 1 Wendell Avenue, Pittsfield
  • Wednesday, February 5, 6:00-8:00pm, UMass Dartmouth, UMass Law Building, Moot Court Room, North Dartmouth
  • Monday, February 10, 6:00-8:00pm, Lynn City Hall Council Chambers, 3 City Hall Square

WMM is built on extensive customer outreach MassDOT started in the youMove Massachusetts project. MassDOT conducted wider outreach to Environmental Justice and Title VI communities through the WMM process, and this outreach complemented the conversations MassDOT conducted at the same time as part of the Patrick Administration’s transportation revenue proposals.  The Stakeholder Summary Report is available on the weMove Massachusetts website.
