Interact live with the board as it moves through today's agenda! All meeting materials are posted on the front page of the site under "2018 MEETING MATERIALS".
Brian: The big news is that WSDOT Secretary Roger Millar is indeed going to take over as the chair of the board in the coming months. The current transition plan calls for the board to be rechristened the TDM Board beginning in 2019, and it will meet quarterly.
This is enormous, encouraging news! It demonstrates the significance of TDM's role in WSDOT's strategic plan, both now and well into the future.
Hi LeAnn! Great to have you with us today. :-)
Guests/friends/peers/colleagues/partners on the phone: Bree Anderson, Debbie Jaksich, LeAnn Yamamoto, Anne Ward-Ryan and Sarah Spicer.
Hi All, just got to the live blog, I am on the phone today.
Hey Sarah! Thanks for joining us. Glad to have you along.
OK, we are on our first agenda item: the agency request update.
Brian: A central part of WSDOT's message to the Governor and the Legislature is that a demand-management proposal is an altogether necessary piece of our state's transportation future. Investments in TDM are going to play a critical role in the coming decades. I am very optimistic going forward despite budget shortfalls and limitations, thanks to all of the momentum we've been able to gather and build thanks to executive leadership fully buying in to the importance of TDM strategies.
Karen: Perhaps we can explore the possibility of signage along our highways for construction projects. Instead of talking about the cost of the project, those signs could indicate the number of minutes of delay or trips reduced by TDM efforts.
Matt: Much of this discussion seems to be about resources as they relate to the ask. Perhaps some of the ask should also include regulations and partnerships as pieces of the strategic direction.
Brian: WSDOT is now exploring whether employees who are able to work while commuting on transit can count that time as part of their workday. If we can effectively demonstrate that our workers can get work done on ferries or on the bus, then that could be extended to other employers around the state.
