Purpose of the Survey

The Jackson Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) provides transportation planning services for the City of Jackson and Madison County in cooperation with the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT). The MPO is currently preparing an update to the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) for our area and would like to hear from you.  One important element of the plan is supporting and improving active modes of transportation such as walking and bicycling.  This survey is being conducted by Gresham, Smith and Partners on behalf of the MPO and will help us improve the plan update.
