Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) like MACOG are required to develop long-range Transportation Plans (TP) with a minimum 20 year planning horizon. The Transportation Plan documents how the MPO Boards plan to invest local, state, and federal transportation dollars in roads and highways, transit, and active transportation infrastructure. The Transportation Plan should include long-range and short-range program strategies and actions that lead to the development of an integrated intermodal transportation system that facilitates the efficient movement of people and goods. It is updated on a four-year cycle, MACOG coordinates the development of the TP with local, state, and federal partners.
