OLYMPIA – The condition of state roads, safety of those who walk and bike, and how tolling does more than just pay for projects are some of the focal points in the latest edition of the Washington State Department of Transportation’s quarterly performance and accountability report.
WSDOT released the 52nd “Gray Notebook” (pdf 5.3mb) this week, providing everyone from law makers and transit agencies to counties, cities and ports in-depth information and updates on the projects and programs that shape the state’s transportation system. It also shows how WSDOT’s work ties into Gov. Jay Inslee’s performance management program, Results Washington, which outlines his priorities for the state.
Performance measures reported in this edition include:
In addition to regular quarterly updates on programs ranging from rail to ferries, the publication includes annual reports on WSDOT’s ongoing efforts to improve how it maintains its infrastructure, and how well the agency is complying with environmental regulations.
“Providing a truly transparent view of how our programs and projects are performing is essential to helping us maintain accountability with taxpayers,” said Daniela Bremmer, WSDOT director of Strategic Assessment and Performance Analysis.
