Long Range Transportation Plan

The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is a comprehensive examination of the future transportation needs within the SAWMPO over a 25 year period. The LRTP presents recommendations for enhanced transportation efficiency and functionality, including the construction of new facilities, improved connectivity to multiple travel modes and the enhancement of existing highway, transit and bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The LRTP also identifies potentially available federal, state and local funding levels and presents recommendations for the future programming and implementation phasing of major projects.The SAWMPO adopted the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan in December 2015, and amended the Plan in August, 2019. 

For a quick guide and reference to the LRTP, the SAWMPO created A Citizen's Guide to the 2040 LRTP. Print copies are available at the CSPDC office, as well as Augusta County, Staunton and Waynesboro Planning Department offices. 

2045 SAWMPO LRTP Update

Currently, the SAWMPO is in the process of updating the LRTP, which is updated every five years, to project transportation needs for the year 2045. Through extensive input from localities through the SAWMPO Policy Board and Technical Adivsory Committee (TAC), public and stakeholder input, and data collection and analysis, the Plan will outline the goals, objectives, policies and improvements that are needed to maintain a safe and efficient multimodal transportation system for the movement of people and goods throughout the area in a manner that will enhance the economic, social and environmental qualities of the community.
