An Audit of Health-Related Performance Metrics in Montana Counties’ Transportation Plans

Started: October, 2022 Ended: February, 2023 Project ID #4WA053 Status: Completed


Transportation systems can impact both physical and mental health, but the effects of transportation planning decisions on health, beyond safety and air pollution, are often overlooked or undervalued. Although not the only factor contributing to health disparities, transportation systems serve as a modifiable variable contributing to health behaviors and outcomes. This project will review the transportation planning documents from the ten most populous counties in Montana to analyze the extent that health is considered.
