Long Range Transportation Plan
The Metropolitan Transportation Plan is the featured product in the MPO planning process required for the recipient of federal funds. The LRTP is developed and maintained by GRPC and approved by the TPC. The LRTP coordinates and provides a vision and direction for the investment of transportation resources to meet future transportation needs for the region. A transportation demand model is used to predict traffic volumes and evaluate projects to improve mobility in the region. The Plan includes recommendations for all modes of transportation, including transit, bikes, pedestrians, and freight. It is a long term, financially feasible strategy showing the improvements for at least 20 years. The LRTP is updated every five years and may be amended as a result of changes in anticipated federal, state, and local funding, major investment studies, congestion management plans, interstate access studies, or environmental impact studies.
