Public Hearing - Draft 2016 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP)

Thursday, July 16, 2015 - 7:00pm

The Pioneer Valley Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) outlines the direction of transportation planning and improvements for the Pioneer Valley through the year 2040.  It provides the basis for all state and federally funded transportation improvement projects and planning studies.  The long range plan concentrates on both existing needs and anticipated future deficiencies in our transportation infrastructure, presents the preferred strategies to alleviate transportation problems, and creates a schedule of regionally significant projects that are financially constrained - in concert with regional goals and objectives and the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21 Century (MAP-21).  The Pioneer Valley Regional Transportation Plan plays a vital role in the advancement of transportation projects and policies for the region.

  • July 14, 2015 - Pioneer Valley Planning Commission, Springfield, 60 Congress Street
