These efforts will support master plan non-auto-driver mode share (NADMS) goals. The project supports the following Countywide vision goals: Easier Commutes and a Growing Economy. Approved land use plans in the corridor recommend the implementation of transit lanes along with US 29 Flash. The project is consistent with the Countywide Transit Corridors Functional Master Plan.
