The ability to easily travel affects our economic status, social status, and our overall standard of living. On a regional scale, the Jackson Metropolitan Area’s economy and environment depend heavily on the efficient performance of the overall transportation system and its reliability. Transportation planning, recognizing our mobility needs, and identifying available resources will allow for the maintenance and improvement of our transportation system, therefore having a positive effect on our economy and quality of life.
The objectives of the proposed outreach project are:
1) to educate the K-12 students with transportation knowledge
2) to excite and recruit high school students for transportation study in their college education.
