The Projects

Since 2002, the PPEC contracts have funded approximately 140 public engagement tasks or projects.  These projects have varied widely in scale, scope, and location, ranging from several meetings to multi-year processes, from local to statewide, and from rural to urban.  The issues addressed typically reverberate beyond the local road system to transportation, land use, and environmental matters of regional and statewide importance. 

The public participation and engagement methods used under these PPEC contracts have also varied widely, from traditional meetings to alternative, innovative, and precedent-setting activities.  Many PPEC projects have complemented and informed other planning efforts, such as the California Transportation Plan, Corridor System Management Plans, Federal Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, and the California Freight Mobility Plan.  All of the projects have demonstrated Caltrans’ commitment to engaging involved communities and stakeholders as inclusively as possible, and to making the best possible use of the public input gained through engagement activities. 

This page showcases some of the PPEC projects conducted over the years.
