Traffic Counts

West Alabama RPO Documents

The purpose of this plan is (1) to determine transit gaps and coordination opportunities among publicly funded, human services transportation programs in west Alabama and (2) to develop strategies to address the identified gaps and coordination issues. This plan did not evaluate transit service provided by the different agencies. Instead it examined transit deficiencies and coordination issues for each county and the entire region.

The Bylaws of the West Alabama Rural Planning Organization outline the general policies of the rural planning organization. The Bylaws provide detailed information regarding the membership and responsibilities of each committee as well as meeting procedures.

The purpose of the RPO plan is to document the long-range transportation needs of west Alabama as identified by the elected and appointed officials in the area. The plan should help local governments address and prioritize their transportation needs. The plan should also help the ALDOT develop the statewide plan and Statewide Transportation Improvement Program and schedule the construction of transportation projects based on their limited budget. However, this plan is strictly advisory. No funds have been set aside to undertake any of the strategies or projects included in this plan.

The West Alabama RPO Technical Coordinating Committee (TCC) maintains a list of active transportation projects in the RPO planning area (Bibb, Fayette, Greene, Hale, Lamar, and Pickens). The list is updated every quarter at the TCC meeting. The information on the list is provided by the ALDOT and county engineers. The WARC staff added the projects to this interactive map.
