Long Range Transportation Planning
2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)
The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is a fundamental document for our region. Not only does it outline our region’s long-range transportation vision, but it also lists all future projects that our region anticipates to undertake in the next 20 to 30 years.
MAP-21, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act, requires that each MPO develop an intermodal transportation plan with at least a 20-year horizon. The plan must be updated at least every four years to keep consistent with existing conditions, re-evaluate proposed plans, programs, and projects, and validate air quality conformity analysis due to the Fredericksburg Urbanized Area’s designation as a maintenance area for air quality. After the long-range plan is adopted and funding is identified, the projects included in the plan will be eligible to advance to the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
The resources below convey information about the current long-range plan. However, staff are working on a new long-range transportation plan and you can help them develop it! Learn how.
