Topic: “Legacy Business Area Transportation Management Association (TMA)”

The Legacy Business Area is a major employment center in NW Plano. Current development underway includes several additional corporate headquarters and a mixed-use town center. The study was two pronged – determining future infrastructure needs and developing transportation management strategies to help reduce traffic demands. The study included the analysis of 50 intersections, stakeholder engagement with an online survey and two committees, prioritization of infrastructure recommendations, and discussion on the formation of a transportation management association.
