Regional Transportation Plan Launched

Get Involved in Connecting our Communities

All interested persons in Mesa County are invited to help set future transportation priorities as part of the Grand Valley 2040 Regional Transportation Plan ("2040 RTP"). The 2040 RTP will help guide investments in the region's transportation system to reduce congestion, ease commutes, improve roadway safety, enhance sidewalks, bike, and multi-use trails, and maintain an efficient and effective transportation system that supports the regional economy. 

According to Mesa County Commissioner Steve Acquafresca, “Transportation affects everyone, every day in many ways. Our transportation system also has a large impact on our regional economy. To make fair and efficient choices with limited resources, we need people throughout the region to let us know what works well and what needs improvement.”

  • Visit our display at the CDOT Statewide Transit Plan and GV Transit open house on May 28th from

  • Participate in CDOT’s Telephone Town Hall on June 26th.

This 2040 RTP is the long-range transportation plan for the Grand Valley region and, although it covers all of Mesa County, it is not a county process or document. The 2040 RTP includes all communities and areas of Mesa County and is a product of the Grand Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization. The Regional Transportation Plan is required by federal regulations and is critical for the region to assess, prioritize, and fund transportation improvements.

For more information, please call Ken Simms, Project Manager, at 244-1830 or visit the plan website at
