Move 2040 is the WAMPO region’s long range transportation plan. MOVE 2040 will identify regional transportation goals and performance measures over the next 25 years.
WAMPO received almost 300 hundred local transportation proposals resulting in over $600 million dollars’ worth of proposed projects for the region. With only $154 million dollars in available funds, WAMPO selected projects and identified programs to follow a targeted transportation investment strategy for the first time in MOVE 2040.
- The Wichita Area is fortunate to have a well-developed major road and bridge network that is in good condition overall. But, we should spend more on maintaining our local streets. Our road network has a lot of capacity to absorb growth.
- It’s easy to get around our metro area by car. We have little traffic congestion, although we do have operational bottlenecks in some locations that should be fixed. We can usually rely on getting to our daily activities without much delay.
- However, for those who do not or cannot drive, the transportation system does not provide many choices. Transit needs to be assessed as a regional matter.
- Because funds are limited for expanding and maintaining our transportation system, we must be careful in how we spend what we have. We cannot afford everything that everyone wants.
