District Updates Transportation Section of Website

To improve the way transportation information is disseminated to the public, the District recently updated the transportation section of its website.  The new format provides more detailed information about all aspects of the transportation planning process and makes searching the site for transportation information easier.  The “Transportation” tab on the site is now divided into five (5) categories these include:  About the MPO; Plans and Programs; Technical Resources; Publications, Maps and Viewers; and Public Notices and Input.
The “About the MPO” section of the site gives background information about the Jackson Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO); explains what area the MPO is responsible for as it relates to the transportation planning process; and discusses the MPO’s committee structure.  The “Plans and Programs” section of the site describes the plans and programs the MPO is responsible for maintaining and makes each available for download in both .pdf and .rtf format.  The “Technical Resources” section discusses the functional classification of roadways in the MPO’s planning area and provides information about the Pavement Management, Sign Retroreflectivity, and Traffic Counting programs.  The “Publications Maps and Viewers” section serves as a redundant section of the website.  Though each publication, map, and viewer can be found on their respective webpage under the transportation heading of the site, the Publications Maps and Viewers section takes all publications, maps, and viewers and groups them together by type on an additional section of the website.  Finally, the “Public Notices and Input” section is where the MPO makes all public notices related to the transportation planning process, available to the public and also gives users of the site an opportunity to provide input and feedback on any matter related to transportation planning.
