 Study overview:

Welcome to the website for the I-80 Corridor System Master Plan (CSMP)—a partnership to provide mobility and transportation solutions throughout the I-80 corridor, now and well into the future. This corridor includes partner states California, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming, and extends from San Francisco, California to Cheyenne, Wyoming.  This is a working website that hosts the ongoing conversations of diverse groups exploring multiple dimensions of I-80 corridor communities and the implications these different dimensions imply for supporting infrastructure. Specifically, this exploration of the I-80 corridor emanates from the six guiding livability principles embraced by the Partnership for Sustainable Communities, an interagency partnership between HUD, DOT, and EPA.  While ultimately many of the ideas from this study will focus on transportation, all the ideas will be connected to the livability of corridor communities, the strategic success of the nation, and benefit of future generations.

Study goals:

  • Information gathering
  • Early-action items
  • Long-term strategies
  • Coalition building

Study objectives

  • We will facilitate an open and transparent process.
  • We will recruit stakeholders vigorously.
  • We will organize invigorating conversations of exploration.
  • We will ensure all voices are heard and understood.
  • We will strive for consensus and acknowledge dissenting views.

Livability Principles

Provide more transportation choices.
Develop safe, reliable, and economical transportation choices to decrease household transportation costs, reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil, improve air quality, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and promote public health.

Promote equitable, affordable housing.
Expand location- and energy-efficient housing choices for people of all ages, incomes, races, and ethnicities to increase mobility and lower the combined cost of housing and transportation.

Enhance economic competitiveness.
Improve economic competitiveness through reliable and timely access to employment centers, educational opportunities, services and other basic needs by workers, as well as expanded business access to markets.

Support existing communities.
Target federal funding toward existing communities—through strategies like transit-oriented, mixed-use development and land recycling—to increase community revitalization and the efficiency of public works investments and safeguard rural landscapes.

Coordinate policies and leverage investment.
Align federal policies and funding to remove barriers to collaboration, leverage funding, and increase the accountability and effectiveness of all levels of government to plan for future growth, including making smart energy choices such as locally generated renewable energy.
Value communities and neighborhoods.
Enhance the unique characteristics of all communities by investing in healthy, safe, and walkable neighborhoods—rural, urban, or suburban communities and neighborhoods. (


Information gathering

Consolidate existing and relevant planning information for the corridor into an electronic repository and develop livability/sustainability summaries for each.

Early-action items

 Develop and prioritize early action items.

Long-term strategies

Define and prioritize long-term strategies.
Coalition building 

Create a project management process that generates a system of stakeholders capable of
re-evaluating the corridor periodically and adjust priorities in light of changing conditions.
