In March, the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Metropolitan Planning Organization updated and adopted its Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). The 2040 LRTP outlines the goals, objectives, policies and improvements that are needed to maintain a safe and efficient multimodal transportation system for the movement of people and goods throughout the area. The LRTP is updated every five years.
A travel demand model was updated with variables for the 2015 base year and then used as a guide to estimate when and where people will travel and to identify potential deficiencies in the transportation network. Staff will use the travel demand model and other available data to continually evaluate and track the performance of transportation investments for the region.
