What is the Long Range Transportation Plan Update?

The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) serves as a blueprint for making area transportation decisions. Over 2019 -2020, MAPO is developing an Update to the region’s Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). The Update will include long-range and short-range strategies and actions that contribute to the development of an integrated multimodal transportation system to facilitate the safe and efficient movement of people and goods. In keeping with the intent and requirements of the FAST Act (and other applicable transportation legislation), and the requirements stipulated by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and the State of Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), the Update will be multimodal in nature. It shall include (but not be limited to) consideration for: public transportation, pedestrian facilities, bikeways, streets, roads, highways, air- and landside airport improvements, transportation system management and operations (TSMO); and freight transportation.

Share your thoughts on the area’s multimodal transportation system in the comment box below. Check the MAPO website for information about future public input events.
