2050 Long Range Transportation Plan

The NEPA MPO is developing its 2050 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP).  The LRTP identifies the major transportation projects, programs and policies needed for the next twenty-five years and establishes the vision and goals that will guide public decisions affecting transportation facilities, infrastructure and services in the region.  As part of the LRTP development, the NEPA MPO conducted significant outreach to gather input from the public including stakeholder interviews, four open house meetings and an online survey.

The NEPA MPO held a comment period from November 17, 2023 to December 18, 2023.  A public meeting to provide comments on the draft plan was held on Tuesday, December 5, 2023 at 10:00 AM.

The NEPA MPO Technical Committee endorsed the LRTP at its meeting on Tuesday, December 19, 2023.  The NEPA MPO Policy Board adopted the NEPA MPO 2050 LRTP at its meeting on Wednesday, January 3, 2024.  The 2050 LRTP is currently under review by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
