SLOCOG's adopted intermodal strategy calls for maximizing utilization of our existing transportation system in a manner that accommodates the needs of all users while reducing overall vehicular travel. The goal is to implement a comprehensive strategy for the maintenance and improvement of State Highways, Routes of Regional Significance, and major local streets and roads in order to reduce traffic congestion, improve mobility and provide safe, efficient, convenient and reliable movement of people and commodities.
Here you will find links to more information on the major Highways and Corridors and routes of regional significance in our region.
