NEPA Metropolitan Planning Organization
NEPA MPO Long Range Transportation Plan
The Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance, as the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for a four-county region in Pennsylvania, which includes Carbon, Monroe, Pike and Schuylkill counties completed the development of a 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. The LRTP also includes an updated air quality conformity analysis report which reflects the compliance of the transportation projects in Carbon County portion of the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton nonattainment area to the 2008 8-hour ozone standard as written within the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990.
The Long Range Transportation Plan was approved at a joint meeting of the NEPA MPO Technical Planning Committee and NEPA MPO Policy Board on Tuesday, March 15, 2016. The LRTP must be updated every four years. An update of the LRTP is currently underway.
The NEPA MPO held a series of “listening session” open houses in each of its counties to obtain public input for the LRTP Update. NEPA also invites the public to participate in an online transportation survey, which is available at https://NEPA-LRTP.metroquest.com.
Below are the sections of the current LRTP.
