Metropolitan Transportation Plan


2045 MTP - Plan Information

The CRTPO adopted the 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) and made an air quality conformity determination on the MTP on March 21, 2018. The Metropolitan Transportation Plan defines the policies, programs and projects to be implemented over the next 25 years in order to reduce congestion, improve safety, support land use plans, and provide mobility choices in the CRTPO planning area. It also addresses the goals and objectives of the CRTPO, the various components of the transportation planning process, socio-economic and financial assumptions, and transportation-related environmental and health issues.

As the designated regional transportation planning entity for all of Iredell and Mecklenburg counties, and the western and central, urbanized portions of Union County, the CRTPO is responsible for the long range transportation planning efforts for the region. The CRTPO, in partnership with the federal, state, and local agencies, works collaboratively to address the transportation needs of the region.
