Review and Comment on Proposed Revisions to 2045 Plan
MetroPlan Orlando is proposing revisions to the 2045 Plan. The updates to the Cost Feasible Plan and Congestion Management Process will help us proactively comply with state and federal long range planning requirements by better reflecting the five-year Transportation Improvement Program in the 2045 Plan. Updates are also being proposed to address feedback from local agency partners following the adoption of the 2045 Plan in December 2020.
Proposed 2045 Plan revisions include:
- Federal and state funded projects within the Transportation Improvement Program were added to the Cost Feasible Plan’s budget allocation tables (Tables 6, 9, 11, 12, and 13) for the years 2020-2025. There are no impacts to existing cost feasibility.
- The off-system capacity improvement program (Table 10) was broadened to include other multimodal needs, in addition to capacity, for facilities located off of the State Highway System.
- Projects to be funded using local or alternative funds were removed from federally-funded Complete Streets and Bike/Pedestrian Infrastructure project lists.
- Congestion Management Process documentation (Table 1) was revised to include updated data from FDOT pertaining to Emergency Response and Roadway Clearance times.
