Public Comment Period on 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan Opens Soon

Using data on where deficiencies in the transportation system exist today, where residential growth and development in the regional will occur tomorrow, as well as community feedback on the vision for the region’s transportation system, the Harrisonburg Rockingham Metropolitan Planning Organization (HRMPO) has developed its draft 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). Input from a record number of community members over the past year has shaped the draft 2045 LRTP, which includes 55 transportation projects across the region.

The public comment period for the draft 2045 LRTP opens on April 20, 2023. HRMPO will be accepting comments and feedback until May 18, 2023. Once the comment period opens you can review the draft plan online and submit feedback directly in a digital version of the document.

Physical copies of the draft 2045 LRTP will be available for review at the Harrisonburg City Hall, the Rockingham County Administration Center, Town of Dayton City Hall, Mt. Crawford Town Municipal Building, Bridgewater Community Center, and the Massanutten Regional Library.

HRMPO, which is staffed by CSPDC, is also offering virtual and in-person opportunities to review the draft LRTP, ask questions, and share feedback.
