Hampton Roads 2045 Long-Range Transportation Plan:  Draft Candidate Transportation Projects

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 Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP).  With a planning horizon of at least 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.

For the past few years, HRTPO staff has been working on updating the regional LRTP to the horizon year of 2045.  Working with regional stakeholders, including the public, a draft list of candidate transportation projects to be evaluated for potential inclusion in the 2045 LRTP has been developed.  These candidate transportation projects will be evaluated through multiple future scenarios in an effort to identify those projects that provide the most benefit to the region regardless of which future assumption is analyzed, thereby highlighting smart investments for Hampton Roads. 

Please click on the following link to review the draft list of candidate transportation projects:  Hampton Roads 2045 Long-Range Transportation Plan:  Draft Candidate Transportation Projects

All interested parties are encouraged to review the 2045 LRTP draft list of candidate transportation projects and send comments to Ms. Theresa Brooks, Transportation Engineer III, at tbrooks@hrtpo.org or by mail to 723 Woodlake Drive, Chesapeake, VA, 23320 by February 14, 2020.

Linking Hampton Roads

A Regional Active Transportation Plan

 

The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads metropolitan planning area, is finalizing its first regional active transportation (bicycle/pedestrian) plan entitled Linking Hampton Roads.

First, HRTPO staff developed an introductory chapter that provides the vision statement and goals, the value of active transportation facilities and connecting communities, types of bicycle users, types of facilities, and level of protection from traffic.

Next, HRTPO staff analyzed the existing conditions, which include the following:

  • Regional Land Use
  • Major Active Transportation Routes
  • Schools
  • Regional Transit
  • Population Density
  • Employment Density
  • Degrees of Disadvantaged Communities
  • Active Transportation Commute Mode Share
  • Crash Analysis
  • STRAVA Metro Data Analysis
  • Previous Local and Regional Plans

Following the existing conditions analysis, staff assessed the needs of the region and took an in-depth look at the existing facilities across the region to develop the infrastructure recommendations, which include proposed regional facilities.

HRTPO FY 2021-2024 Transportation Improvement Program

Draft Project List

The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA).  As the federally designated MPO, the HRTPO is responsible for coordinating transportation planning and programming activities for the Hampton Roads MPA.  This includes the development and maintenance of the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).

The TIP is a financially-constrained, multi-year program for the implementation of surface transportation projects within the MPA.  The TIP must contain all federally-funded and/or regionally-significant projects that require an action by the Federal Highway Administration or the Federal Transit Administration.  Before any such project can be conducted or constructed in the MPA, it must be included in a current TIP that has been approved by the HRTPO.

The HRTPO, in coordination with the Virginia Department of Transportation, the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, Hampton Roads Transit, Williamsburg Area Transit Authority, and the Cities and Counties of Hampton Roads, is in the process of developing a full update of the TIP.  The current TIP covers fiscal years (FY) 2018-2021.  The new TIP under development will cover FY 2021-2024.   

The Draft HRTPO FY 2021-2024 TIP Project List is being made available for public review and comment.  You may access the Draft TIP Project List by clicking on the following links:
