The Lower Connecticut River Valley Council of Governments (RiverCOG) is in the process of developing a new Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) for the Lower Connecticut River Valley Region (LCRVR). This plan, formerly called the Long-Range Transportation Plan, examines the long-term transportation needs of the region over a 25-year planning horizon. The MTP is a federally-mandated plan that determines the region’s priorities for allocating federal transportation funds. RiverCOG updates this plan every four years as the foundation of the overall transportation planning program, as the region’s Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). This plan, as revised for 2019, 1) identifies important transportation goals, policies, and priorities to meet access and mobility needs, 2) Identifies funding mechanisms and develops a fiscally constrained implementation plan, and 3) Incorporates new performance-based planning and programming requirements.
The draft plan is also shared with local, state, and federal agencies. The final plan needs to be adopted by the MPO Board by mid-April 2019.
