Caltrans Seeks Public Input on Statewide
Long-Range Transportation Plan

Submitted by Caltrans
March 1, 2016
Deadline is March 29 for comments

SACRAMENTO – Caltrans invites the public to help shape the state’s transportation future by offering input and comments on the California Transportation Plan 2040 (CTP 2040). The Plan lays out a vision for California’s transportation future to provide mobility, support a vibrant economy and meet greenhouse gas emission reduction goals.

“The public can play a key role in the long-term vision we are creating for California’s transportation system,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty. “Our population is growing, the way we live and move is changing, our transportation system needs evolving, and therefore our game plan needs to be forward-thinking.”

The CTP 2040 envisions a fully integrated, multimodal and sustainable transportation system in California. Caltrans seeks public input to help ensure the CTP 2040 is fully consistent with the department’s mission of delivering a low-carbon transportation system capable of meeting our goals of mobility, safety and sustainability.

The CTP 2040 supports Governor Brown’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It will help meet goals consistent with California’s existing commitment to reduce emissions 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050.

The development of the CTP is an open and collaborative planning process that includes early and continuous engagement with governmental agencies at all levels, the private sector, advocacy groups, community organizations, and the public.

The public can review and comment on the plan via the following website address, www.californiatransportationplan2040.org. Comments may also be submitted by email to ctp2040@dot.ca.gov or by sending a letter or a completed comment form to: California Department of Transportation, Division of Transportation Planning, Office of State Planning, 1120 N St., MS 32, Sacramento, CA 95814. Comments must be submitted by 5 p.m., March 29, 2016.

Bishop – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is proud to announce the promotion of Tom Hallenbeck, District 9 Director.  Tom has accepted the position of Chief of the Division of Traffic Operations in Sacramento, Ca. effective October 1, 2014.
 
Tom started with Caltrans right after graduating from Union College with a Civil Engineering degree.  He began his career in the Office of Structures, Design & Construction working on bridge projects throughout the state.  In 1997 he accepted the position of District 9 Director in Bishop, CA.  
 
About his time as District 9 Director in Bishop, Tom stated, “It has been an honor and pleasure to serve the people of the Eastern Sierra for the last 17 years.  I am excited about taking on new challenges but also sad to leave the Bishop community that we have been a part of and raised our family in.  I look back on many accomplishments but look forward to the innovations and applications that will change the way we drive.”
 
Tom also stated that during his tenure in District 9, “We have responded to floods, fires and avalanches.  We have rehabilitated every rest area and almost every “Main Street” in the district and left them more accessible and more complete.  We have expanded and improved the US 395/SR 14 corridor, and by so doing, saved countless lives.  It has been a privilege to be a part of helping improve and maintain the El Camino Sierra and all of the roads in District 9.
