What is it?

Transportation planning involves the development and implementation of transportation plans, policies, and projects for our communities. We work to ensure that people can move safely and efficiently throughout their community using various modes of transportation such as public transit, cars, bikes, and walking. We can help repair roads and bridges, along with installing sidewalks, trails, or even parks. We help with anything that requires getting around in your community.


We work directly with the municipality we are helping and correspond with governmental agencies such as MoDOT to help improve the community.  We conduct studies, gather data, and analyze transportation systems to identify problems and opportunities for improvement, along with finding and applying for grants on behalf of the community we are helping.

Road Construction

Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC)

Truman's Transportation Advisory Committee works directly with citizens and communities to compile a list of regional transportation needs to be reviewed by MoDOT, then submitted to the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).  The STIP, prepared annually, sets forth the specific construction projects MoDOT will undertake in the next five years.  It covers highways, bridges, aviation, rail, waterways, bicycle, and pedestrian transportation needs, along with operations and maintenance projects.   


With transportation planning, Truman can apply and administrate various grants to help your community such as Rural Statewide Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) Grants, Safe Streets For All Grants to prevent roadway deaths and serious injuries, and Active Transportation Grants to create opportunities for people to exercise for recreation and to build physical activity into their daily routine by getting around their town. We use these to help with zoning, roads or bridges repair, and installation of  parks, trails, sidewalks, crosswalks, and traffic calming or speed reduction improvements. Please feel free to contact us with any ideas your have for your community.
