Posted on: November 20, 2023 in Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP)
The MetroPlan Orlando Board will consider amending the region’s 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan at its December 13 meeting, and members of the public are invited to comment on the proposed plan revisions.
The proposed revisions also will be presented to MetroPlan Orlando’s advisory committees in the months of December 2023. Changes to the plan include: 1) Adding federal and state funded projects within the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) to the Cost Feasible Plan’s budget allocation tables. 2) Adding funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) that was provided for the MetroPlan Orlando region, along with incorporating a new program for Carbon Reduction Funds. 3) Including three federal discretionary grants that have been awarded to MetroPlan Orlando partners in the Cost Feasible Plan for planning consistency.

The 2045 Plan is a working document, and changes are occasionally included by making amendments or modifications. An amendment is a change made to the plan that involves major revision such as additional revenue being available to advance projects, major change in design concept or scope or increase in project costs.
