The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)

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 2045 LRTP in December 2020.
