What is a Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)?
The LRTP is the long-range transportation planning document that describes the region's current transportation system and how that system should be maintained and modified over the next 20 years. The LRTP needs to be updated every 4 years by the Central Massachusetts Metropolitan Planning Organization (Click here for information regarding the CMMPO).
The LRTP addresses each of the major modes of transportation within the Central Massachusetts region. It is considered both a multimodal and an intermodal document by providing an inventory of the major modes, identifies challenges and needs, and also provides a series of recommendations. Project-specific, and major transportation improvements need to be reflected in the LRTP in order to be eligible for Federal-Aid funding through the region's Transportation Improvement Program (Click here for information regarding the TIP).
The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) is the national transportation legislation that authorized the Federal surface transportation funding for highways, safety, transit, non-motorized transportation, and intermodal facilities. MAP-21 reiterates the requirement for the preparation of a Long Range Transporation Plan (LRTP) document every four years within regions defined as Transportation Management Areas (TMAs).

Transportation planning is a cooperative process designed to foster involvement by all users of the system, such as the business community, community groups, environmental organizations, the travelling public, freight operators, and the public. It is accomplished through a transparent and active public participation process conducted by the CMMPO. To review the CMMPO Public Outreach Program document, please click here.
