Principle: Provides safe and efficient connections to modes of transportation, including transit, streets, sidewalks, and bike-ways with a focus on enhanced technology at high-priority intersections improving safety and minimizing traffic congestion.

Description

The Jefferson Parkway Public Highway Authority (JPPHA) will complete the last un-built portion of the metropolitan beltway, the Jefferson Parkway, through a public-private partnership to finance, design, build, operate, and maintain the Parkway.

Significance
