The long-range transportation plan (LRTP) is the vision for maintaining and enhancing the regional multimodal transportation system for the next 20 years. The plan, updated at least every five years, identifies the region’s critical needs and challenges and provides a framework that will guide decision-making for future transportation investments. HEPMPO has begun developing a new LRTP update, entitled Direction 2050, to be completed in 2022. Click here to read HEPMPO’s current Long-Range Transportation Plan.
The public comment period for the draft LRTP will begin on Saturday, April 16, 2022, and end on Tuesday, May 17, 2022, at 4:00 pm EST. Only written comments will be accepted.

Through the evaluation of challenges and needs, the current Long-Range Transportation Plan identified a comprehensive inventory of regional projects that would provide greater efficiency and connectivity within the current transportation system. These projects were categorized based on their cost and benefit, as well as what funding will be available since the estimated funding for all projects across the region far exceeds the total amount of funding anticipated. The list of projects will be reviewed and updated as part of this LRTP process.
Fiscal constraint projects are those projects prioritized for future funding in the next 25 years.
Unfunded projects are those projects that have been identified as regional needs but do not have sufficient funding.
The existing and conditions projects are projects that have dedicated funding sources and are programmed in the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). A map of these projects can be found here.
