Transportation planning is a comprehensive process for evaluating transportation needs in a collaborative and meaningful way. It allows for public involvement in setting long-term transportation visions and goals in order to prioritize projects for federal transportation funding.
In national parks, transportation systems connect parks with surrounding communities and provide visitors access to public lands. To enhance visitor experience and ensure positive impacts to surrounding communities and landscapes, these systems require coordinated planning.
Long Range Transportation PlansLong Range Transportation Plans (LRTP) coordinate transportation investments over a 20 year time horizon. These plans, along with other strategic and project-specific plans, ensure alignment with our Federal Highway Administration, state, metropolitan, and local government partners.
