DRAFT Hampton Roads 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan Prioritization of Transportation Projects, Project Evaluation and Scoring Report

The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads metropolitan planning area, has completed the DRAFT Hampton Roads 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan Prioritization of Transportation Projects, Project Evaluation and Scoring Report.

The HRTPO is currently in the process of updating the regional Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) to the horizon year 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 for the next 20 years.  To accomplish this task, the HRTPO developed a list of approximately 200 candidate transportation projects to be considered for inclusion in the 2040 LRTP. 

The evaluation and scoring of these projects are summarized within this report and will serve as a guiding tool in developing regional transportation priorities.  This document will also be used in the development of the fiscally-constrained 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan.
