Horizon2040 is the latest update to the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). Every Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is required to have a LRTP that is reviewed and updated over time. GPATS reviews the LRTP every five years and updates it every ten. Click here to learn more about the current GPATS Long Range Transportation Plan.
This particular update began with a kick-off meeting on September 7th, 2016. Since this kick-off we have held eight sub-regional meetings in October to hear everyone’s wants and needs, hosted an online MetroQuest survey, sent out a statistically valid survey, and conducted another nine sub-regional meetings in May and June. This last set of meetings allowed us to get your take on our draft project recommendations! We will now take what we heard and work with it to finalize the plan over the coming months.
Thank you everyone who has participated and made your wants and needs known. Keep an eye out for news about our wrap-up meeting in a couple months. Additionally, below you can find reports from our first set of public meetings, the surveys we sent out, and a State of the Region Report. Check them out and contact Brennan Hansley, Transportation Planner, at (864) 467-7270 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or comments.
