Thoroughfare Planning

As always, last night’s LSL-led public meeting was a great success. A job well done!  Thanks for everything. — Transportation Planner, Southeast Michigan Council of Governments

Thoroughfare plans coordinate land use with long-range transportation plans.  They provide a hierarchy of streets—freeways, limited access highways, minor highways, cross-town streets, neighborhood feeder streets, etc.—and examine routes between origins and destinations so that residents can travel directly, easily and safely.

Our transit planners help communities create thoroughfare plans that foresee street development needs, reduce costs through coordination with private development, minimize disruption and reduce environmental impacts.
