What is the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan?
  • Identifies prioritized multimodal projects for implementation 
    • The plan will include a list of prioritized projects that will determine where transportation funding should be spent and is also used to seek additional funding. Multimodal projects include roadway, bike/pedestrian, transit, and freight projects.
  • Ensures the vision, goals, and priorities reflect the desires of current community member
    • The 2045 Regional Transportation Plan should reflect the desires of the community. Communities change, priorities change, and decision-makers have to decide where transportation funds are spent. What do you want the transportation system to look like in 2045? 
  • Mandated to be updated every 5 years in order to qualify for Federal funding
    • In order to receive federal funding for transportation, the Grand Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is required to have a regional transportation plan and update it every 5 years. 

  • Reflect and incorporate rapidly changing transportation technology and innovation
    • Communities continuously change as does the world around them. Our transportation system should be responsive to community needs while incorporating ever-improving technologies.
