Public Event: Long Range Transportation Plan

The Charlottesville-Albemarle MPO would like to invite you to the 2040 LRTP Public Outreach Event on Wednesday, August 28 from 5pm-7pm in the Water Street Center on the Downtown Mall. This event will focus on the process that has been implemented to date and the next steps in this process. We are also seeking public input regarding the 3rd Round Scenario Analysis. Currently the MPO is analyzing three different scenarios for this round. These scenarios focus solely on capacity-building improvements (roads and transit). We will be looking at other kinds of improvements (bike and pedestrian, bridges) later in this process. For more information please visit the 2040 LRTP website, www.tjpdc.org/lrtp
