Draft 2045 Plan Document
The 2045 Plan must be cost feasible, meaning we have to have to be able to pay for projects in the plan with revenues expected over the next couple of decades. This draft Cost Feasible Plan document includes an outline of funding, a list of projects we can afford, and a list of unfunded needs. The MetroPlan Orlando Board will vote on adoption of the 2045 Plan at its December 9, 2020 meeting.
If you would like to dig deeper into the planning process, a series of 2045 Plan technical reports is available here.Back to top of page

Projects & Funding: 2045 Plan By the Numbers
The 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan is a $24.3 billion plan including $11.44 billion in federal, state, and local funded projects, and another $12.86 billion in projects funded with tolls by Central Florida Expressway Authority and Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise. The 2045 Plan includes projects from years 2026 through 2045.
This plan diversifies our transportation system more than ever, investing in multimodal projects for all users. It represents a shift from moving cars to moving people. Some of the projects in the plan would have never been funded through the traditional roads-focused approach of years past. However, our region’s transportation needs still greatly outweigh what we can afford based on current funding projections.

Public Participation Report
The 2045 Plan resulted from robust technical planning and the integration of public input. Feedback from the community was crucial to creating a plan that reflects the values of people who live, work, and play in Central Florida. This draft Public Participation Report discusses what we heard from the public and evaluates how we measured up to objectives set forth in our Public Participation Plan.Back to top of page
