The Transportation Planning Process

The Transportation Planning Process for state and local governments, specified in the United States Code 134, Title 23, requires that an MPO be designated in urbanized areas with a population exceeding 50,000 persons. The MPO is designated by an agreement between the Governor and local governments within the MPO study area. The MPO is responsible for having a continuous, cooperative, and comprehensive transportation planning process that results in plans, programs, and projects that consider all transportation modes and support metropolitan community and economic development and social goals.
