Part 1: About Connected 2050 LRTP

The LRTP is a federally mandated document that guides transportation decision-making and investments in the St. Louis region over the next 26 years. It is updated every four years and includes policies, system data, and a list of projects for all modes of transportation including roadways, public transportation, freight, bicycle, pedestrian, and paratransit. East-West Gateway is seeking your input on this important plan starting May 8 through June 7, 2023. The survey will close on June 7, 2023 at 11:59 pm. Input will be used to finalize the Connected 2050 Long-Range Transportation Plan, which will then be used to make transportation investment decisions.
