Thank you everyone who participated! Keep an eye out for draft ranked project lists over the next couple weeks. In the time being, we have posted the presentation and draft recommendation boards from the meeting below. Feel free to share this information and to email us with any questions or comments!
Horizon2040 is the latest update to the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). Every Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is required to have a LRTP that is reviewed and updated over time. GPATS reviews the LRTP every five years and updates it every ten. Click here to learn more about the current GPATS Long Range Transportation Plan.
This particular update began with a kick-off meeting on September 7th, 2016. Since then, we held eight sub-regional meetings in October, 2016 to hear everyone’s wants and needs. We followed those up with nine more in May and June of 2017 to make sure we were on the right track. Additionally, to reach a broader audience, we hosted an online MetroQuest survey and mailed out a statistically valid survey. We took what we heard and worked with it to finalize our list of project recommendations and scheduled a final Horizon2040 Long Range Transportation Plan meeting on August 29th, 2017. We are currently working to finalize our ranked project lists, including the fiscally constrained and vision lists. Draft versions will be posted here once they are completed.
Thank you everyone who has participated in our public outreach thus far. Below you can find reports from our first set of public meetings, summaries of results from the surveys we sent out, and a State of the Region Report.
