Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP)

MTP 2045

The Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP, previously known as LRTP) is a fiscally-constrained and required planning document that reflects planned transportation investments over the next twenty-five years. It forecasts changes in the region and seeks to identify transportation improvements needed to keep travelers and goods moving smoothly and how to fund those improvements. The plan is multi-modal and identifies investments in roadway, public transportation, bicycle and pedestrian, rail and aviation projects.  The current 2040 MTP,  under Regionwide Plans page,  covers 2015-2040 and was originally adopted on September 24, 2015. 

MTP Update

The updated MTP is being considered for adoption in September 2020. The plan forecasts planned transportation investments in the region from 2020-2045. FBRMPO and the MTP steering committee will review and consider the feedback received during the public comment period. The draft MTP will be presented to the MPO Board for adoption at their September 24th meeting. In addition to comments and survey results being relayed to the Board, a public hearing will take place before adoption. Once adopted, the 2045 MTP will help to guide future transportation projects and initiatives in the region over the next five years.
