Elmira-Chemung Transportation Council 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan
About the project
Federal law requires our Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to update the area's 20-year transportation plan every five years. The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) must provide a picture of existing conditions, an overview of goals and objectives, and a list of projects that will be put in place over the next five years. The Planning Organization is starting to lay the groundwork in 2019 for our 2040 plan and as part of that process, we want your input!
The Elmira-Chemung Transportation Council has received funding from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) of the U.S. Department of Transportation under the Metropolitan Planning Program, as well as with funds through the New York State Department Transportation (NYSDOT) for the development of the initial LRTP. We will develop the project to meet the metropolitan planning requirements of the current federal transportation legislation, Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act.
