HAMPTON ROADS 2040 RURAL LONG-RANGE TRANSPORTATION PLAN

 

The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads metropolitan planning area, has produced the draft 2040 Rural Long-Range Transportation Plan (RLRTP).

The RLRTP is part of a statewide initiative to create regional transportation plans in rural areas that complement those in Virginia’s metropolitan and small urban areas.  Each RLRTP is developed as a blueprint, or vision plan, to address needs of the transportation system in rural study areas, regardless of anticipated funding availability.  This regional plan can then be used by local, regional, and state agencies to identify transportation funding priorities.
