CRTPO HAS STARTED A PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD ON THE DRAFT FISCALLY CONSTRAINED PROJECT LIST AND ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION CORRIDORS COMPONENT AS PART OF THE 2050 METROPOLITAN TRANSPROTATION PLAN
The Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) has started a public comment period for the 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) Draft Fiscally Constrained Project List. Official release of the draft project list occurred during the June 16 CRTPO Board meeting. The project list and opportunities of public comment can be viewed at: https://2050mtp.org/projects/.
The MTP is a fiscally constrained plan that spans a minimum 20-year horizon. The Federal Highway Administration requires the CRTPO to update its MTP every four years to define the plans, programs and policies to provide mobility choices throughout the region. The MTP identifies recommendations for surface transportation including streets and roads; transit; and bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Projects approved for inclusion in the 2050 MTP must demonstrate that they can be implemented using committed or anticipated revenues. The project list is an important component of the Plan, as it outlines the transportation projects proposed to be funded over the life of the MTP. The active transportation component of the MTP identifies corridors that may benefit from future bicycle/pedestrian projects. This process does not prioritize or commit funding to the active transportation corridors. Approval of the 2050 MTP is scheduled for March 2022. The public comment period for the 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) Draft Fiscally Constrained Project List will end on Wednesday, July 14, 2021.
CRTPO is the federally designated metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Charlotte urbanized area which includes Iredell, Mecklenburg and Union counties. More information is available on the CRTPO website at www.crtpo.org.
