  • Multi-Modal Transportation Planning Pays Off in Ashland: In the past year, Ashland has increased transit service, added bike lanes, and implemented a road diet on Highway 99 through town.

These achievements are all supported by Ashland's multi-modal Transportation System Plan (TSP), which was developed in partnership with the TGM program, and show the value of planning for all modes of transportation.
