In 1987, the City of Brighton completed the Brighton Transportation Study to identify a street network plan to serve existing and proposed development within and adjacent to the City. Since 1987, the City has experienced rapid growth in population and is currently evaluating a number of large development proposals. To complement a recently adopted comprehensive plan, the City of Brighton initiated this transportation master plan update in late 2000.
The purpose of this transportation master plan update is to develop a multi-modal transportation plan that reflects current city transportation requirements and anticipates future growth needs. Designed as a guide for city staff, developers and local citizens, the transportation master plan is designed to develop an updated major street network plan and integrate transportation plans developed by the City for other modes into a single document.
