Long Range Transportation Plan
The Charlottesville-Albemarle MPO's 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan looks ahead three decades to assess future transportation projects vital for our region. The plan considers all modes of transportation including highways, roads, bus, rail, bicycle, pedestrian and air. This planning process updates the 2035 United Jefferson Area Mobility Plan (UnJAM 2035), which was approved by the MPO Policy Board in May 2009.
The 2040 LRTP is a fundamental document for our community. Not only does it outline our region's long-range transportation vision, it also lists all future projects that we anticipate our region will undertake in the next 20 to 30 years in an effort to attain that vision. The project list is one of the more critical elements of the plan in that federal funding cannot be allocated to transportation projects unless they are included on this list. Additionally, this list of transportation projects must be fiscally constrained, meaning that the MPO cannot plan to spend more money than it expects to receive.

POTENTIAL AMENDMENTS – 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)
The potential amendments to the 2040 LRTP are now available for review. These amendments, if approved, would alter the 2040 LRTP fiscally-constrained project list to reflect the projects that were recently developed as part of the Route 29 Solutions Process and added to Virginia’s Six Year Improvement Program (SYIP) by the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) on June 18th 2014. To illustrate these potential amendments, MPO staff choose to fully revise fiscally-constrained project list. This document shows completely how these amendments, if approved by the MPO Policy Board, would alter the existing 2040 LRTP. Potential additions to the document are shown in red text and potential deletions to the document are shown by struck-through text. This document is meant to serve as a hypothetical illustration based solely on the projects approved on June 18th. These projects will not be incorporated into the 2040 LRTP until the MPO Policy Board officially votes to include them. The MPO Policy Board will vote on this amendment on July 23rd 2014 at 4pm, in Albemarle County’s Lane Auditorium. A public hearing will be held for these amendments. For any questions or comments regarding these potential amendments, please contact MPO Program Manager, Sarah Rhodes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Public comment regarding these potential amendments is encouraged.
