Long Range Planning (LRTP)

The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is a long-range (20+ year) strategy and capital improvement program developed to guide the effective investment of public funds in multimodal transportation facilities. The plan is updated every 4 years, and may be amended as a result of changes in projected Federal, State, and local funding, major improvement studies, Congestion Management Process plans, interchange justification studies, and environmental impact studies.  The Plan provides the context from which the Region’s Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), a short-range capital improvement program for implementing highway, transit, and bikeway projects, is drawn.

2040 Long Range Transportation Plan

On May 5, 2016, the MVRPC Board of Directors adopted the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan, an update to the previous Plan. The 2040 LRTP is a 25 year multimodal transportation plan with a base year of 2010 and a planning horizon year of 2040. The 2040 LRTP lists roadway, transit, bikeway/pedestrian, and transportation alternative projects that reflect the region's shared values from various stakeholders in the region, including local elected officials, planners, engineers, business community, special interest groups, and the general public. The Plan also reflects current and projected land uses, demographics, economic conditions, traffic conditions, and Local/State/Federal priorities.
