Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)
The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is a comprehensive examination of the future transportation needs within the MPO boundaries. The LRTP presents recommendations for enhanced transportation efficiency and functionality, including the construction of new facilities, improved connectivity to multiple travel modes and the enhancement of existing highway, transit and bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The LRTP also identifies potentially available federal, state and local funding levels and presents recommendations for the future programming and implementation phasing of major projects.
The goal of the LRTP is to create an effective framework for mobility and development together with a set of priority transportation investments that will address the area’s current and long-term needs. The projects that are selected as priorities for the transportation network will be programmed into the Statewide TIP for funding. The plan must comply with Federal guidelines as outlined in MAP-21 and is updated every five years.
