Thoroughfare Plan

Madison County is developing its first complete Thoroughfare Plan. A thoroughfare plan identifies priorities to improve the existing road network and to accommodate future travel demands based on population and employment projections. Unlike a traffic study, which is intended to address immediate traffic concerns, thoroughfare plans address short, medium, and long-term transportation issues. The purpose of the Madison County Thoroughfare Plan is to evaluate existing conditions, establish a clear vision and goals for the future, and identify recommendations that translate the vision and goals into actionable projects and initiatives throughout the County.

We want your input as we work to develop this important planning document. Opportunities to provide feedback are listed below. This section will be updated throughout the planning process.

Online Survey and Collaborative Mapping Activity

The project team invites you to complete the following online activities:  an online survey and collaborative mapping activity.  By completing these activities, you help the project team better understand the community’s thoughts regarding streets, sidewalks, bike lanes, and trails in Madison County. The feedback received from these public engagement opportunities will help determine future transportation priorities and opportunities.

Public Open House


A Public Open House is tentatively scheduled for October of 2023.  At this open house, the vision, goals, and plan recommendations will be available for public review and comment.
