Transportation has a direct and personal effect on each and every resident of Hampton Roads. Even if you do not drive, all the goods and services you depend on rely on the region’s roadway system. The Long-Range Transportation Plan, or LRTP, is the document that identifies and plans for critically important transportation improvements that impact the region’s economic vitality and every citizen’s quality of life. More importantly, regionally significant projects must be included in an adopted LRTP in order to advance towards construction.
The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the transportation planning agency for Hampton Roads, has completed the draft 2034 LRTP and is inviting the public to review and comment on this report.
The draft 2034 LRTP report documents the effort in developing the region’s transportation blueprint for the next twenty years. LRTPs are updated every four years to reflect changing conditions such as new planning priorities, population projections, economic conditions, and anticipated travel demand. These changing conditions can impact the regional transportation system; therefore future plans must consider alternatives to effectively address these needs. Once alternatives are determined, funds are identified to pay for new or widened facilities. This entire process requires regional cooperation and public participation.
