System Planning Branch
The System Planning Branch is fundamental to Caltrans' long-range planning for interregional transportation and statewide travel analysis. Statewide system, interregional, and advanced corridor planning provide the basis for identifying current and future deficiencies on the State highway system and also identify improvements to meet mobility goals.
In coordination with other functional programs, the Branch provides direction and reporting of state highway projects for both the Regional Transportation Improvement Program and Interregional Transportation Improvement Program projects. This ensures that the Department is consistent with priorities derived within the Regional Transportation Plan and Interregional Transportation System Plan as the second stage in the planning process, leading towards project funding in the State Transportation Improvement Program and other programs.
