Health Impact Assessment of LRTP Complete Street Projects


Project Background and Overview

The Hillsborough TPO passed a Health in All Policies (HiAP) Resolution in 2019 and has since made strides to integrate health concerns and priorities into all area of the transportation planning process, with the recognition that transportation does more than just move us around; transportation is a critical factor that influences people’s health and the health of a community. That investment in sidewalks, bike lanes, trails, public transit, and other infrastructure that supports physical activity can result in improvements to individuals’ health and decreased health care costs.

In support of the HiAP, the TPO has completed a Health Impact Assessment of the complete street projects in the 2045 Long-Range Transportation Plan. The Final products can be found below:
