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.
The 2040 Regional Transportation Plan Programmed Project List contains all the projects that are currently programmed in the existing approved 2040 RTP.
The Draft 2045 Regional Transportation Plan Needs List contains potential projects for future programming.
