The objective of STARS (Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions) Program is to develop comprehensive, innovative transportation solutions to relieve congestion bottlenecks and solve critical traffic and safety challenges throughout the commonwealth. The STARS program takes a multidiscipline approach that helps to: develop innovative, cost-effective solutions; evaluate potential solutions more thoroughly; identify potential project risks and costs; build stakeholder consensus; and improve readiness for project funding and implementation.
- Arterial Preservation Program
The purpose of the Arterial Preservation Program is to preserve and enhance the capacity and safety of the critical transportation highways that accommodate long distance mobility of people and goods throughout the Commonwealth. As an alternative to widening these major highways to add capacity, preservation and enhancement strategies will promote the use of innovative transportation solutions that minimize delays for through traffic and improve safety while considering local economic development goals. Developed in partnership with localities, the identified preservation and enhancement strategies will be used as tools to plan for infrastructure that supports future land use and development.
