Metropolitan Transportation Plan
The Metropolitan Transportation Plan is the planning document that reflects all surface transportation investments for the next 25 years in the Radcliff/Elizabethtown metropolitan planning area. Each transportation project that is regionally significant and/or utilizes federal transportation funds must be listed, providing a vision of how our transportation network will function and appear in the future. The MTP is updated every 5 years. In the event that the MPO planning area becomes non-attainment in terms of air quality, the MTP will be required by federal law to be updated every 4 years.
The MTP provides the 25-year vision in order to determine how this will affect the planning area and the local communities. The MTP is based on comprehensive land use and other plans from the jurisdictions within the Radcliff/Elizabethtown urbanized area to ensure a realistic picture of how the area is expected to change in that time. The planning process, by using information and data from land use plans, forecasts what our communities and the planning area will be like in terms of population, jobs, housing, commuting patterns, financing, and general land use for the next 25 years. This process is based on highway and socioeconomic data. The MTP is a fiscally constrained document that projects future revenues and costs based on Year of Expenditure dollars. This estimates changes that will occur over time in both project costs and expected revenues.
