The final public comment period for the Regional Transportation Plan commences today. Speak now or hold your peace:
45-day public comment period on the Regional Transportation Plan opens March 22
On Monday, Metro opens a public comment period on both the 2035 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and the plan’s Air Quality Conformity Determination. The RTP is a long-term blueprint that guides transportation planning and investments throughout the region, and is updated every four years.
The current RTP proposal, accepted by the Metro Council and the Joint Policy Advisory Committee on Transportation (JPACT) in December, calls for more than $20 billion in transportation enhancements during the next 25 years. The projects will improve safety and travel choices, revitalize downtowns and main streets, create jobs and enhance our economy while maintaining clean air and reducing our region’s carbon footprint.
