Our Regional Plan

The MPO's Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) guides the area's metropolitan transportation systems over the next 20 years. With the help of transportation planners, engineers, elected officials and the public, the plan ensures facilities and services required to support the mobility needs of the regional community and its future growth are anticipated and available. Look below for the 2045 LRTP and its amendments.

Approved Amendments and Transportation Conformity Reporting

From time to time, projects or assumptions made in a plan will change. As part of the federal process, an expansion project must be in the regional transportation plan, or LRTP. When projects arise that are not in the plan, the plan must be amended. Here you will find the original LRTP and amendments to the LRTP. Each amendment includes a full, revised project list.

Amendments to the 2045 LRTP will be made up to twice annually. Check the full meeting schedule for LRTP amendment request deadlines, as well as TIP amendment request deadlines.
