The Skagit 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (Skagit 2040) is a multimodal plan that establishes the strategic framework for meeting the Skagit region’s existing and future transportation needs. Developed through extensive coordination with affected agencies and public input, Skagit 2040 provides a “tool box” to facilitate cooperation and maximize resources for priority transportation projects and programs for funding and implementation through 2040.
Skagit 2040 integrates state requirements for a regional transportation plan and federal requirements for a metropolitan transportation plan into one plan. It provides a long-range look into the region’s transportation needs and includes transportation projects and strategies to meet those needs. Skagit 2040 includes a financial assessment of transportation finance in the Skagit region, forecasting revenues and expenses over the planning period to assist in determining what the region can reasonably expect to fund to address the region’s needs. Financial strategies are identified in Skagit 2040 as tools that may be used to raise additional funds for existing and future transportation needs.
