The ultimate goal of this plan is to ensure that the Treasure Valley – Ada and Canyon Counties – remains a healthy and economically vibrant region that offers people choices in how and where they live, work, play, and travel. To do that, Communities in Motion 2040 2.0 (CIM 2040 2.0) forecasts how the region is expected to grow, anticipates the transportation needs to accommodate that growth, then prioritizes projects to meet those needs.
This web-based plan allows you to easily find the information you care about without having to wade through a large document, while still providing access to all of the technical details when you need them – just click on “learn more” on each page.
CIM 2040 2.0 is an update to Communities in Motion 2040, adopted by the COMPASS Board of Directors in 2014. As such, it retains many tenets of CIM 2040, while refining transportation priorities.
CIM 2040 2.0 examines how individual transportation system components (bicycle/pedestrian, freight, public transportation, roadways) work together to form a complete transportation system. Using priorities identified in CIM 2040 as a starting point, priorities were refined looking at all four system components, through the lens of performance-based planning.
There are not sufficient funds to meet all transportation needs, leaving many needed projects unfunded. Learn about how COMPASS went about prioritizing regional transportation needs.
COMPASS uses much of its federal funding to maintain the existing transportation system, including roadways, public transportation, and bicycle and pedestrian networks.
Many Treasure Valley transportation projects have funding commitments to be completed by 2040, including roadway widening, pathways, bridges, intersection improvements, and more.
There is not enough funding to meet all transportation needs. Unfunded needs have been prioritized and COMPASS will continue to seek funding for these regional priorities.
