FHWA PlanWorks: Better Planning, Better Projects


New applications are a way to use the Decision Guide focused on an individual topic that is of interest to the transportation agency and/or partners and stakeholders. Each application highlights the Key Decisions relevant for that topic and provides a description of this relationship as you roll over the Key Decisions. Viewing the Decision Guide through the lens of a single topic helps practitioners understand:

  • Where additional stakeholders may need to be engaged
  • The relationship of this topic to other required planning activities, and
  • How consideration of the topic evolves across the phases of decision making.
