The County Connections Comprehensive Transportation and Mobility Study was a joint planning effort undertaken by the Elkhart County and the St. Joseph County Redevelopment Commissions. Its aim was to better understand transportation issues, identify opportunities, and promote the coordination of future infrastructure investments on the key corridors connecting these two counties.
The study was conducted in two main phases – (1) Context Analysis and Recommendations and (2) Implementation. Data collected and provided in the reports in the Context Analysis phase was utilized alongside public comments at the County Connections Open House and Community Survey to develop final study recommendations and implementation phasing.
Both study phases included public engagement in the form of a project website, on-line surveys, Steering Committee meetings, local stakeholder interviews, a public open house, and study plan presentations to both the Elkhart County and the St. Joseph County Redevelopment Commissions.
