The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO) is updating the Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) to the horizon year 2050. This plan will address future transportation needs for the region. As part of the development of the 2050 LRTP, HRTPO staff developed a MetroQuest public survey to help identify regional priorities and important transportation issues. This survey was made available online between October 1, 2022 and November 1, 2022, through various outreach methods, including HRTPO websites, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and locality websites. HRTPO staff also posted flyers advertising the survey at libraries across the region. Additionally, the survey was publicized through WTKR News 3 and WAVY-TV.
The survey comprised 18 questions that covered a range of topics, including proposed goals, regional issues, transportation problems, congestion, public health, equity, and future transportation. Additionally, survey participants had the opportunity to provide input on a vision and goals for the 2050 LRTP.
