Each MPO must adopt a regional long range transportation plan (LRTP) outlining recommended improvements to the region's transportation system over a twenty year period. The LRTP acts as the official guide for the expenditure of federal and state transportation funds that are expected to be available in Erie County. The projects listed in this document are intended to reflect the community values and vision for improving the overall transportation system.
The Erie MPO LRTP is also adopted by Erie County Council as the transportation element of the Erie County Comprehensive Plan.
The current LRTP (Adopted March 12, 2012) is available by following the links below:
