The latest issue of the Gray Notebook is now online showcasing Washington State Department of Transportation’s quarterly results for projects and programs. Over 100 pages of the document cover information on the statewide transportation system from bridge counts, congestion issues and updates on major construction projects.
Instead of just focussing on a bunch of numbers, the director of the strategic assessment, Daniela Bremmer, says they arrange everything in a story format as a form of journalism.
“We want to show transparency and accountability,” Bremmer said. “We are trying to illustrate and show the performance of the things we have responsibility for - the projects and program we are implementing and what the results are.”
The behind the scenes document on the state transportation system caters to different audiences including commuters, public officials and engineers.
