The Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is updated every six to 10 years and looks ahead 20 years to establish multimodal strategic directions for Pennsylvania’s transportation system. The draft 2045 statewide LRTP was developed in coordination with the draft Freight Movement Plan (FMP) that proposes strategies, recommends policies, and identifies projects to improve multimodal freight movement. The Public Comment Period for both draft plans took place from September 20 through October 19, 2021. The 2045 LRTP was accepted in Spring 2022. The 2045 FMP was accepted in December 2022.
Metropolitan and Rural Planning Organizations (MPOs and RPOs) develop Long-Range Transportation Plans (LRTPs) as an integral part of their planning process. Each LRTP identifies transportation needs, goals, projects, and policies covering a 20-year period, and is usually updated every four or five years. Click on a region to view the current LRTP.
