The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads metropolitan planning area, has produced the draft Fiscally-Constrained 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan List of Projects.  This List outlines regionally significant transportation investments planned for construction or further study over the next 20 years.

For the past four and a half years, the HRTPO, in partnership with regional stakeholders, has been updating the regional Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) to the horizon year of 2040.  As part of this process and in keeping with federal regulations, the HRTPO must consider multimodal transportation options to effectively address future regional needs based upon projected population and employment growth. 

The draft List of Projects for the 2040 LRTP identifies $12.8 billion of critical transportation investments needed to maintain the region’s economic vitality and every citizen’s quality of life.  The draft List is comprised of 159 construction projects and studies.  The plan identifies 35 Committed Projects (projects under construction or will soon be constructed and fully-funded in the Fiscal Year 2015-2020 Six-Year Improvement Program), the 9 Regional Priority Projects, 88 planned Highway (including bridge and intermodal) Projects, 14 Transit Projects, and 13 Active Transportation projects.  This public notice is to request public review and comment on the draft Fiscally-Constrained 2040 LRTP List of Projects.
