Census TAZ Update News

Earlier this week the AASHTO CTPP Oversight Board met and reached an agreement on traffic analysis zones (TAZs) for the American Community Suvey (ACS). MPOs and states wishing to create TAZs will be able to do so during the summer of 2011. This is a change from the previous schedule (spring of 2009) and now gives everyone more time along with the benefit of knowing what the block level 2010 population counts will be when making TAZs. Stay tuned for more details.
