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 public meeting on August 29th, 2017. Since then, the Horizon2040 team has been working hard to make a working draft of the full document. We are pleased to announce that the DRAFT Horizon2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan is now available for your viewing to the left! Please understand that this document is subject to change.
Thank you everyone who has participated in this process so far. Below you can also find reports from our first set of public meetings, summaries of results from the surveys we sent out, the original State of the Region Report, and the documents from our final public meeting in August. Direct any comments or concerns to Brennan Hansley, Transportation Planner, at (864) 467-7270 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
