Transportation Collaboration in the States

This 36 page report was prepared by the National Policy Consensus Center (NPCC) for the Federal Highway Administration Office of Project Development and Environmental Review. An NPCC team developed an assessment tool and interviewed state officials and other stakeholders during site visits to four states: Massachusetts, North Carolina, Utah, and Virginia. The report was designed to collect information in four areas of interest: (1) issues, barriers and obstacles to transportation planning and project development; (2) current communication and coordination methods; (3) use of collaborative approaches; and (4) future opportunities for collaboration and training. The report also identifies recurring issues faced by states in undertaking collaborative work and provides recommendations for next steps.
