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.

This website will be the core resource for all materials regarding the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan. We look forward to working with all of you to develop our region's transportation vision.
