Findings and recommendations on methods of air quality maintenance and transportation planning are presented. The report focuses on transportation control plans and identifies several problem areas, including uncertainties in air pollution data, tight planning deadlines and limited resources, lack of information on transportation control options and their impacts, difficulties in intergovernmental and interagency relations, and breakdowns in communication with the affected public. The research indicates means by which the air quality planning process can be strengthened. More planning on the local levels and more explicit coordination with the ongoing activities of other agencies are recommended.
