Recognizing the importance of its river crossing to the dozens of communities that host them and the motorists who rely upon them, the Commission often conducts public involvement programs in connection with its major capital improvement projects.
The Commission began utilizing public-involvement strategies on bridge rehabilitation projects in 2001. A formal policy of conducting such programs was adopted in 2009.
Through its periodic project-specific public involvement efforts, the Commission believes it will be better equipped to increase public confidence in its operations, improve accountability of project decision makers, and reduce conflict, distrust and misinformation in the execution of capital projects.
Well-applied public-involvement programs can help facilitate successful capital projects and promote a respectful and informed exchange of ideas, issues and concerns between the Commission and the public it serves.
