Local planning group opens survey about long range transportation plan

The Great Falls Metropolitan Planning Organization is in the process of developing the 2023 Great Falls Area Long Range Transportation Plan.

The LRTP assists planning agencies and broader community in guiding transportation infrastructure investments based on system needs and anticipated developments over the 2045 planning horizon.

The plan considers all previously completed planning efforts, provides analysis of existing and projected traffic, safety, and infrastructure conditions, and identifies feasible recommendations to be implemented over the next 20 years given current funding constraints.

To start the process, the MPO opened a survey on the community’s travel habits and transportation priorities that will help the planning team as they consider and plan for the future of transportation in Great Falls.

The deadline for the survey is May 10.

The survey is here.
