NEPA Metropolitan Planning Organization
2045 Long Range Transportation Plan
The NEPA MPO has recently adopted its 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). The LRTP identifies the major transportation projects, programs and policies needed for the next twenty-five years and establishes the vision and goals that will guide public decisions affecting transportation facilities, infrastructure and services in the region. As part of the LRTP development, the NEPA MPO conducted significant outreach to gather input from the public including four open house meetings and an online survey.
Once the draft LRTP was developed, the NEPA MPO held a comment period from February 14, 2020 to March 23, 2020. A public meeting on the draft LRTP was held on March 2, 2020 in Swiftwater, PA and three remote locations in Jim Thorpe, Milford and Pottsville. During the comment period, comments were received and addressed in the final draft of the plan. The NEPA MPO Technical Committee and Policy Board approved the Long Range Transportation Plan including the Air Quality Conformity Analysis report and Air Quality Conformity Resolution on April 21, 2020.
