By 2040, Tennessee is projected to have an additional 2 million people and be the 15th most populous State in the United States. With this growth will come increased economic and community development challenges
as well as issues related to planning and accommodating future demand. One key challenge will be providing and maintaining the quality transportation system that the traveling public and businesses in Tennessee have come to rely upon.

In response to this projected growth and demand, the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) wants your input on the development of Tennessee’s next 25-Year Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP).
The Plan will take a look at changes in population, demographics,
the economy, technology, land use, departmental policies, and other variables to develop a data-driven roadmap to guide their efforts over
the next 25 years.

The Jackson Area MPO is currently seeking public participation to help select transportation projects to be included in the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan and the FY 2014-2017 Transportation Improvement Program. Please feel free to fill out the from below to submit your input.


Your Input



Jackson Area Metropolitan Planning Organization

In 1982, Jackson was designated a Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) by the Governor of the State of Tennessee, since its "urbanized area" had exceeded 50,000 in population. The urbanized area is designated by the U.S. Census Bureau and is composed of an area comprised of the current city limits and the developing areas adjacent to the city.

The MPO coordinates continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive transportation planning activities within the Jackson Area in cooperation with Tennessee Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration. The MPO planning activities include street and road projects and the public transportation system in Jackson. The MPO planning activities are performed on a day-to-day basis by a professional staff at the Jackson Municipal Regional Planning Commission, subject to the concurrence of the
MPO Executive Board and Technical Staff.

In order to encourage a balance of all modes of transportation, the MPO Staff prepares plans and programs that identifies all transportation planning and related activities to be undertaken within the Jackson Area.
