Plan Overview

Jackson County is in the process of creating and adopting a countywide transportation plan that will assist in defining county wide transportation needs, goals, and priorities. The plan will include an assessment of transportation project needs and recommendations for transportation improvements to foster a healthy, livable and successful community. The transportation improvement recommendations may include projects such as:

  • Roadway operational and capacity improvements
  • Pedestrian and cycling enhancements
  • Transit recommendations

The plan development process will include public involvement and will solicit input from interested citizens, business owners and all stakeholders in the community. You will be able to provide input throughout the planning process. Our interactive PublicInput site  allows you to provide comments, suggestions, and identify potential improvement areas.

The Jackson County Transportation Plan will be shaped by the members of the community. We hope you will check back often for updates and to give feedback on this important project.
