The Roanoke Valley Transportation Plan is a long-range strategy and capital improvement program developed to guide the effective investment of public funds in multimodal transportation facilities. The plan is updated every five years and may be amended as a result of changes in projected Federal, State and local funding, or changes to priorities based on other significant studies/plans.

The Roanoke Valley Transportation Planning Organization (RVTPO) is recognized as the official metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Roanoke, VA urban region as required by federal law.  In order for the region to receive federal funds for use on highway, transit, non-motorized, and multimodal systems, the MPO is required to develop a Metropolitan Transportation Plan with a minimum 20-year planning horizon as well as a Transportation Improvement Program with a four-year time horizon.  The Roanoke Valley Transportation Plan houses both of these requirements to demonstrate the region’s performance-based transportation planning and programming process.

The Roanoke Valley Transportation Planning Organization (RVTPO) fully complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related statutes and regulations in all programs and activities. For more information, see or call (540) 343-4417.
