2045 Long-Range Transportation Plan

As the region’s Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), one of the core functions of the HRTPO is to develop, approve, and maintain a fiscally-constrained LRTP.  With a planning horizon of 20 years, the LRTP serves as the blueprint for enhancing the region’s multimodal transportation system.  The LRTP is updated periodically to reflect changing conditions such as new planning priorities, population projections, economic change, and anticipated travel demand.  The current LRTP with a horizon year of 2040 was adopted in June 2016.  HRTPO staff has initiated the process of updating the LRTP to the horizon year 2045. 

Scenario Planning

As part of the development of the 2045 LRTP, and in coordination with the Regional Connectors Study (RCS), scenario planning will be utilized to consider how changes in transportation, land use, demographics, or other factors such as sea level rise could affect connectivity, mobility, resiliency, and communities across the region.  The scenario planning effort of the 2045 LRTP and RCS will analyze three alternative scenarios in addition to the 2045 baseline scenario.

Regional Connectors Study

The HRTPO is coordinating work on the Regional Connectors Study (RCS), the focus of which is transportation connectivity in terms of congestion relief, economic vitality, resiliency, accessibility, and quality of life.  The RCS was funded by the Hampton Roads Transportation Accountability Commission and will reexamine alternatives that were considered in the Hampton Roads Crossing Study Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement.  Included in the RCS is the development of tools, measures, and assumptions to allow for Scenario Planning.  The same tools, measures, and assumptions will be used in the Scenario Planning work that will be conducted as part of the development of the HRTPO 2045 Long-Range Transportation Plan.
