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.

Consolidate existing and relevant planning information for the corridor into an electronic repository and develop livability/sustainability summaries for each.
Develop and prioritize early action items.
Define and prioritize long-term strategies.
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.
