2045 Regional Transportation Plan

Development of the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan for Southeast Michigan is now underway and will last until adoption in Spring 2019.  The 2045 RTP will be Southeast Michigan’s guiding transportation policy document that:
  • - Assesses the current state of regional transportation
  • - Anticipates future demand for regional mobility and access
  • - Estimates funding available for investing in transportation
  • - Forms policies that guide investment and implementation activities
  • - Tracks performance and progress towards targets

Public Involvement

Planning for the transportation system impacts each of us. We need good roads and bridges to drive on, good buses to ride on, and ways to walk and bike to jobs, parks, schools, grocery stores, hospitals, and cultural attractions. The future of our transportation system depends on our actions today.  A Public Hearing will be scheduled for the middle of March 2018 to provide the public an opportunity to discuss their vision for the future of Oakland County's transportation network.

About the Plan

Oakland County has a large and complex transportation system. In metropolitan areas such as ours, the transportation plan is the statement of the ways the region plans to invest in the transportation system. Per federal regulations, the plan shall "include both long-range and short-range program strategies/actions that lead to the development of an integrated intermodal transportation system that facilitates the efficient movement of people and goods.

Community leaders throughout Oakland County have worked to identify the transportation network needs in their community over the next 25 years. The process is composed of many steps, including:

Monitoring existing conditions;
Forecasting future population and employment growth, including assessing projected land uses in the region and identifying major growth corridors;
Identifying current and projected future transportation problems and needs and analyzing, through detailed planning studies, various transportation improvement strategies to address those needs;
Developing long-range plans and short-range programs of alternative capital improvement and operational strategies for moving people and goods;
Estimating the impact of recommended future improvements to the transportation system on environmental features, including air quality; and
Developing a financial plan for securing sufficient revenues to cover the costs of implementing strategies.
