2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)

2045 Long Range Transportation Plan Schedule

The TPA is progressing in its update to the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) with a horizon year of 2045.

 

The draft 25-year Cost Feasible Plan will be presented to the TPA Governing Board at their meeting on July 18 in West Palm Beach. See full meeting details listed above.

The presentation will review estimated implementation costs by phase for each project. The projects - which were selected from the TPA's Desires Plan - seek to advance the TPA vision, goals and objectives.

Maps will be presented to identify projects to be fully constructed through 2045, and projects that can only be studied and/or planned for implementation through 2045 based on existing financial resources and regulations constraining their use.

Monitor the schedule and provide feedback on LRTP presentations to the TPA Governing Board and its advisory committees. View agendas, backup materials, meeting minutes and presentation slides at PalmBeachTPA.org/meeting.
