About the Transportation Sales Tax Workshop and Long Range Plan Update:
In order to provide further information on the project selection and evaluation process for the Missouri sales tax initiative, this page
provides links to some of the resources used to develop the project lists for the St. Louis region. In addition to analyzing existing plans, projects for all modes were also reviewed by relevant
partner agencies in an attempt to develop comprehensive lists for stakeholder consideration and evaluation.
Highway projects were drawn from East-West Gateway's Regional Transportation Plan 2040 as well as Missouri on the Move, MoDOT's long-range transportation plan.
Bicycle and pedestrian projects were derived from the Gateway Bike Plan, as well as On the
Transit projects were informed by Moving Transit Forward, Metro's long-range plan.
Freight projects were drawn from work done for the St. Louis Regional Freight Study,
completed in 2013.
In addition to generating a list of candidate projects, it was necessary to develop a context for project evaluation. In doing so, East-West
Gateway has drawn on multiple levels of goals and performance measures, beginning with the emphasis areas of the federal transportation bill, MAP-21.
Additionally, developed through extensive statewide public involvement, the four goal areas of MoDOT's On the Move provide
a transportation vision for the state of Missouri.
On a regional level, the St. Louis region recently undertook the OneSTL sustainability planning effort, which identified regional transportation goals, objectives, and policies. Much of OneSTL's transportation framework
was influenced by East-West Gateway's Ten Guiding Principles, which guided the development of RTP 2040 and will provide a foundation
for Connected2045, the region's next long range transportation plan, due in 2015.
