Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) 2045 Update

What is the Long Range Transportation Plan 2045 Update?

In 2020, MAPO adopted the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) 2045 Update. The Update serves as a blueprint for making area transportation decisions. It includes 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 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 is multimodal in nature. It includes (but is not 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.
