Planning Process

The MassDOT planning process turns an idea into a project.

The planning process consists of a series of efforts that involve many agencies. These efforts include studies, project coordination, funding, and public participation. However, guidelines, availability of funds, and competing needs may create limitations. This means the planning process may take years for a proposed idea to become a transportation project.
