Long Range Transportation Plan
MUMPO is responsible for maintaining a long range transportation plan (LRTP) for its entire planning area, which outlines its goals and objectives, as well as addresses transportation related issues and impacts over a 20-year minimum horizon. The LRTP is a federally-mandated, long-term planning document detailing the transportation improvements and policies to be implemented in the MPO’s planning area. The plan complies with the Statewide and Metropolitan Transportation Planning regulations issued by the US Department of Transportation.
The 2035 LRTP can be viewed by clicking the following link:
The LRTP is required to be updated every four years, and the next plan update is due in March 2014. Due to the complexity and coordination required to complete the plan update process, work has recently begun on what will be MUMPO’s 2040 LRTP. More information can be found on this webpage about the plan update process.
2040 LRTP Process Overview
The LRTP Advisory Committee, comprised of staff throughout the MPO’s current and proposed future planning area boundary, was created to help guide the LRTP update process. Advisory Committee meetings are held monthly to discuss various issues related to Plan development. A Steering Committee, comprised of key MPO staff, was also created to provide support to the Advisory Committee.
2040 LRTP Goals & Objectives
The goals and objectives for the 2040 LRTP were endorsed by the MPO at its meeting on April 17, 2013. An outline for how the goals and objectives were developed can be found by clicking here

2040 LRTP Candidate Projects
Over 270 roadway candidate projects were submitted to be evaluated for inclusion in the 2040 LRTP. Projects were submitted by jurisdictions in the MPO’s current and proposed future planning area boundary. The LRTP is a financially constrained document; therefore, only a limited amount of roadway projects will be able to be included in the Plan. The MPO, at its meeting on March 20, 2013, approved a project ranking methodology to evaluate the projects. A LRTP Ranking Committee was formed to participate in the evaluation process. After each project is scored, fiscal constrain will have to be applied to determine a final list of projects to be included in the 2040 LRTP.
