National Transportation Strategy - Strategic Framework
The draft framework for the NPS National Transportation Strategy reflects agency and departmental priorities for achieving the agency's mission through three strategic goals:
· Protect the climate and advance resource protection: The NPS is striving to meet its mission to protect and preserve natural and cultural resources, minimize contributions to climate change, and improve the resilience of transportation systems to extreme weather events and climate change impacts
· Enhance visitor experience and connect diverse communities: To improve equitable access for visitors and better connect parks to surrounding communities, the National Park Service seeks to modernize transportation systems through investments in transit, trails, and technology.
· Reinvest in the transportation system and make legacy investments: The National Park Service will make investments to maintain and improve the condition of its existing transportation infrastructure, including roads and parkways, parking areas, transit infrastructure, trails, bridges, and tunnels and water-based transportation systems. This includes reconstruction or replacement of aging infrastructure beyond its useful lifespan.
