PHASE 1

MoveSJ Phase 1 Report by IBI Group - March 2017

MoveSJ is a three phase project that will guide how people and goods will move throughout the City. The plan will guide transportation infrastructure investments within the City for the next 25 years. This plan is not just about roads. MoveSJ takes an integrated approach to transportation incorporating considerations such as parking, active transportation and transit which were not components of the previous 1999 transportation study.  
 
The purpose of MoveSJ is to create a balanced transportation network. It integrates active shared modes of transportation and supports sustainable development, healthy communities, and a vibrant urban centre – all principles of Smart Growth.
 
MoveSJ is another example of how the City is striving to better position itself for sustainability as it will guide both the operation and development of the City’s transportation system. It is for these reasons that a guide for future transportation investment is crucial.
