The purpose of this document (hereafter referred
to as the Plan or LRTP) is to provide members of the Metropolitan
Planning Organization, transportation providers, the general
public, and other affected groups and individuals with an
updated comprehensive Long Range Transportation Plan for the

The Plan provides a twenty-year vision for
the metropolitan transportation system and represents the
product of an extensive public participation effort. The LRTP
provides a fiscally constrained program for transportation
improvements over the twenty-year life of the plan. In addition,
the Plan provides specific recommendations for additional
