Updated every four years, the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), Connecting Kentuckiana 2040, is the planning document that identifies transportation related needs and wants and project specific surface transportation investments through the year 2040 in the Louisville/Jefferson County, KY-IN Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA). Each transportation project that is regionally significant and/or utilizes federal transportation funds must be identified in the Metropolitan Transportation Plan.
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a short-range fiscal programming document representing the first four (4) to six (6) years of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan.
One of the basic and most informative tools of planning is collecting viewpoints and opinions from members of the public to help inform policy makers. A requirement of the Louisville (KY-IN) MPO is to have a process in place to collect this information. This process is defined by the Louisville (KY-IN) Metropolitan Planning Organization Participation Plan.
