The purpose behind the Long Range Transportation Plan is to provide a forecast for future transportation improvement projects throughout the City of Saint Charles. This Plan incorporates the industries best practices for pavement preservation, bicycle and pedestrian transition planning, safety standards, and traffic generation and forecasting. The results of these analyses, in addition to public feedback, form the basis for identifying future transportation needs.
These projects are broken into 4 categories based on funding status:
Completed Projects - funds have been fully spent;
Active Projects - currently spending funds;
Planned Projects - have not started but have funds allocated in CIP;
Future Projects- currently have no funds allocated.
On the map linked below, you can see that the City completed four projects in 2019 (highlighted in green). There are 15 active projects (blue), 19 planned projects (yellow) and 45 future projects (purple). Active projects are either in the design or construction phase. Planned projects have not started design but have funds set aside for the project; while future projects have not started design and have not gathered funding. See the Long Range Transportation Plan Outline below for detailed information on these projects.
