SEDA-COG Long Range Transportation Plan

The SEDA-COG Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is required to conduct a continuous, cooperative, and comprehensive transportation planning process. Developing a Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is an integral part of this process. The LRTP identifies transportation needs, goals, projects, and policies for at least a 20-year horizon, and it is typically updated at 5-year intervals.

The SEDA-COG LRTP establishes the vision and objectives that guide public decisions affecting transportation facilities and services in the region. It serves as the blueprint for transportation and economic investments that address network deficiencies, safety issues, mobility constraints, accessibility limitations, and unsustainable development. SEDA-COG MPO staff coordinates development of the LRTP with residents throughout the region, a diverse steering committee, and other local, state, and federal agencies.

The current SEDA-COG LRTP was adopted in July of 2016. The Plan is broken into the following main sections: Introduction, Regional Context, Core Transportation Inventories & Trends, Issues & Implications, Plan Implementation, Plan Assessment, and Outreach & Public Involvement. The LRTP is available for download below, along with the technical appendix items.

Consistent with the LRTP’s Plan Assessment section, SEDA-COG staff is committed to annually tracking and reporting on the performance measures included in the Plan. These performance measures are designed to examine the condition of our transportation system and gauge the effectiveness of the strategies developed for implementation.
