Long Range Transportation Plan – LRTP

The Long Range Transportation Plan or LRTP is a multimodal strategy document and capital improvement plan developed to guide local public transportation investments over a 20-30 year period. The plan is required by Federal and State regulations as a condition of transportation funding and grant eligibility. The LRTP also represents a common sense approach to evaluating community needs over the long term to help prioritize the most effective use of limited public funds. The plan is required to be updated every five years to ensure it remains an accurate guide for future transportation investments. The plan may also be amended more frequently as new studies or funding programs may warrant. All plan updates and/or amendments are subject to a public notice and review process. Updates and/or amendments only become official after extensive review, a public hearing and formal adoption by the MPO Executive Board composed of elected officials from Jackson, Madison County, Three Way, and Medon.


The current plan was developed and adopted in 2017. This plan is intended to remain in effect until 2022 and is available for reference in its entirety here:
