Statewide Corridor Planning 9 SWCP Framework A diagram of the conceptual framework for SWCP and for the planning guidance that follows is shown in Figure 1. This framework describes the key steps that are part of a corridor-based approach to statewide transportation planning. Note that the key contributions of this guidance to the overall planning framework occur at the beginning and end of the process. Although there are key actions that must be done to ensure consistency of results on a statewide basis, the steps in the middle of Figure 1 constitute nothing more than a good corridor planning analysis. The major steps that are recommended for undertaking a successful SWCP process include 1. Establish organizing principles and institutional structure. 2. Establish a corridor network. 3. Identify study corridors. 4. Conduct corridor studies (elements related to the SWCP approach): Establish organizing principles and institutional structure, Identification of vision, goals and performance measures, Problem identification, Alternatives identification and analysis, Project and corridor evaluation, and Project and corridor investment program. 5. Identify statewide investment program and system management strategy. Figure 1. Conceptual framework for a statewide corridor-based transportation investment program.
