2020 Regional Transportation Plan - Update

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.  This document is an update to the current RTP (last published in 2016) and is endorsed by the Pioneer Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO).     

Your feedback is an important part of this process and will provide guidance on the future transportation improvements that could be funded over the next 20 years. All comments are requested in writing by the target date of July 22, 2019 at 5 PM.

We pledge to balance performance based strategies and projects that promote sustainable development, reduced use of fossil fuels, healthy and livable communities, provide for efficient movement of people and goods, advance economic vitality and enhance connectivity in the region.
