2035 Plan Schedule

The development of the 2035 Regional Transportation Plan began back in 2007 when the MPO began several major studies throughout the region to update regional planning models, evaluate transit options, analyze the benefits of improvements to walking and biking facilities, and identify the most appropriate methods of managing roadway congestion over the next two and a half decades. The plan was adopted by the MPO Executive Board on December 15, 2010.
