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

Project #: 4WA053
Start Date: 10/15/2022
End Date: 02/28/2023
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.
