Rural Long-Range Transportation Plan (RLRTP)

The Rural Long-Range Transportation Plan (RLRTP) is part of an initiative to create regional transportation plans in rural areas that complement those in Virginia’s metropolitan and small urban areas.  The RLRTP is developed as a blueprint, or vision plan, to assess potential impacts of population and employment growth on the transportation system in rural areas regardless of anticipated funding availability.  For the Hampton Roads RLRTP, rural areas include the City of Franklin and Southampton County.



2045 Rural Long-Range Transportation Plan

The current Hampton Roads Rural Long-Range Transportation Plan is for the horizon year 2045 and was adopted by the HRTPO Board on July 21, 2022.  The 2045 RLRTP, developed in collaboration with rural stakeholders, documents the evaluation and prioritization of transportation recommendations, highlighting recommendations that align with statewide VTrans Mid-Term Needs and Priorities.  The 2045 RLRTP is intended to serve as a resource for local, regional, and state agencies in pursuing SMART SCALE and other potential funding opportunities.
