For the past four and a half years and in partnership with regional stakeholders, the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads region, has been updating the regional Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) to the horizon year of 2045. As the regional transportation blueprint, the LRTP must consider multimodal transportation options to effectively address future regional needs based upon projected population and employment growth.
As part of this process and in keeping with federal regulations, the HRTPO has produced the DRAFT 2045 Long-Range Transportation Plan Fiscally Constrained List of Projects. This draft list outlines regionally significant transportation investments planned for construction or further study over the next 20 years. These proposed investments, totaling $12.6 billion, are needed to maintain the region’s economic vitality and quality of life for residents and visitors. The draft list is comprised of 137 multimodal transportation projects and regional studies ranging from interstate improvements to new bicycle and pedestrian facilities.
This public notice is to request public review and comment on the DRAFT 2045 LRTP Fiscally Constrained List of Projects.
