The Roanoke Valley Transportation Planning Organization (RVTPO) is recognized as the official transportation planning agency for Roanoke, VA urban region as required by federal law. In order for the region to to receive federal funds for use on highway, transit, non-motorized, and multi modal systems, the MPO is required to develop a long range transportation plan with a 20-year planning horizon. The Long Range Transportation Plan is a long-range strategy and capital improvement program developed to guide the effective investment of public funds in multi modal transportation facilities. The plan is updated every 5 years, and may be amended as a result of changes in projected Federal, State and local funding, or other significant studies/plans. The Long Range Plan provides the context from which the region’s Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), a short-range capital improvement program for implementing highway, transit, and bikeway projects, is drawn. The long range plan also has an active public involvement process.
