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.
To review the Long Range Transportation Plan:
The HRMPO 2035 LRTP outlines the goals, objectives, policies, and improvements that are needed to maintain a safe and efficient multimodal transportation system for the movement of people and goods throughout the area in a manner that will enhance the economic, social and environmental qualities of the community. It identifies the highest priority projects in the region which are eligible for federal transportation funding and for which funding is projected to be available. The Plan was developed through extensive input from localities through the HRMPO Policy Board and Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), the public, as well as data collection and analysis and was approved in May of 2012.
