Decision Support System
By answering the following questions, this software will help
you determine what transportation-related issues your Federal
land is experiencing, as well as the potential solutions to
these challenges. You can answer the questions without specific
data. For example, if you are asked if your Federal land has
congestion at the entrance gate, you can answer based on your
best judgment and not by referring to specific data.
This process will lead you to potential solutions (presented
as “Fact Sheets”) for each transportation challenge
you have indicated by your answers. The Fact Sheets are categorized
in four areas: Infrastructure (the built environment), Intelligent
Transportation Systems (“ITS” or electronic solutions),
Policy (the management of assets and systems), and Transit
(alternative transportation modes).
Be sure to answer all questions on each page. Based on your
responses to each series of inquiries, more detailed questions
may be asked to determine where (e.g. en-route, gateway communities,
etc.) or why a particular transportation challenge may be occurring,
and what limits there may be on potential solutions.
Some questions may appear at first glance to be redundant.
However, by answering all questions, you will ensure that all
applicable potential solutions are listed. Once your customized
list of potential solutions has been created, you will then
need to compare and evaluate the solutions. You can begin this
process by reading the information presented within the Fact
Sheets, and by using additional resources, some of which are
listed in the Resources
Section of the Toolkit.
Keep in mind the Toolkit is the beginning of a process that
will ultimately need further investigation of transportation
professionals, such as individuals with the Federal Highway
Administration, or the National Park Service. This
process should take no more than 20 minutes. To use the Decision
