Transportation system policy goalsDuties.

To support achievement of the policy goals described in RCW 47.04.280, the department shall:
(1) Maintain an inventory of the condition of structures and corridors in most urgent need of retrofit or rehabilitation;
(2) Develop long-term financing tools that reliably provide ongoing maintenance and preservation of the transportation infrastructure;
(3) Balance system safety and convenience through all phases of a project to accommodate all users of the transportation system to safely, reliably, and efficiently provide mobility to people and goods;
(4) Develop strategies to gradually reduce the per capita vehicle miles traveled based on consideration of a range of reduction methods;
(5) Consider efficiency tools, including high occupancy vehicle and high occupancy toll lanes, corridor-specific and systemwide pricing strategies, active traffic management, commute trip reduction, and other demand management tools;
(6) Promote integrated multimodal planning; and
(7) Consider engineers and architects to design environmentally sustainable, context-sensitive transportation systems.
