The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)
The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) documents the region’s transportation needs, and is updated every five years.
HRMPO is in the process of developing the 2045 Plan, and is offering several opportunities to gather feedback and input that will guide the latest Plan’s development.
638 people responded to the Phase One survey. View the Phase One Visioning Survey Report Here.
The community priorities identified in the Phase One visioning survey will be used to determine which transportation projects are considered in the LRTP, and to develop the evaluation criteria for projects.
Phase Two, which is anticipated to begin in summer 2022, will offer members of the public the opportunity to weigh in on the proposed regional projects.
Learn More About Phase One
Phase One of the 2045 LRTP process was a visioning survey, which was open to the public from February 1 through March 2, 2022.
We hosted a webinar on February 16 and shared more about Phase One and the LRTP process. This webinar was recorded and can be viewed here.

What is a LRTP?
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.
