The planning process is very detailed and includes a series of technical reports. Reports will be posted to this page as they become available throughout the development of the 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). These reports will remain in draft form until they are formally adopted by the MetroPlan Orlando Board in December 2020.
If you have questions on any of these reports, please contact our 2045 Plan project manager, Alex Trauger at 407-481-5672 x313.
PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PLAN
This Public Participation Plan ensures the community has a voice in the development of the 2045 Plan by creating opportunities to be informed and engaged throughout the planning process. It outlines how MetroPlan Orlando will seek public input for the 2045 Plan.
TECHNICAL SERIES 1: GOALS & objectives
This technical report outlines MetroPlan Orlando’s transportation vision, goals, and objectives for the 2045 MTP. The goals and objectives outlined in this document will guide subsequent planning and analysis efforts over the course of the 2045 Plan development and implementation.
TECHNICAL SERIES 2: DATA SOURCE GUIDE
The 2045 Plan uses reliable data sources to inform policy decisions and plan better infrastructure that supports an improved quality of life for all transportation system users. This report serves as a data dictionary, and outlines the comprehensive set of data types and their sources used for the 2045 Plan.
TECHNICAL series 3: origin-destination analyses
Transportation planning has long relied on traffic volumes, travel times, and roadway capacity. These metrics are still important, but they do not always capture the full story of a transportation system. In this report, the flow of people from their origins to their destinations takes center stage.
TECHNICAL SERIES 4: EXISTING CONDITIONS & Area Profile
This report looks at the MetroPlan Orlando region, establishing a current snapshot of the planning area and pulling valuable insights from historical trends. It provides an overview of the region’s demographic, land use, mobility, and emerging technology conditions. The data and existing conditions established here will form the basis of future forecasts along with the development of alternate future scenarios.
PRELIMINARY MULTIMODAL NEEDS
Currently under review by our local agency partners, these files contain the preliminary multimodal needs and opportunities identified through the 2045 MTP’s Needs Assessment process. The needs assessment process included: the review of existing regional, state and local plans/initiatives; state of the practice mode/user specific analyses; and by utilizing a GIS data-driven model that considers over 25 factors that qualify and quantify our MTP goals and objectives.
Technical Series 5: Financial Resources
This report explores how transportation programs and projects could be funded over the next 20-25 years. Projections for federal, state, and local funding through the year 2045 will be used to develop the Cost Feasible Plan. In addition to existing revenue sources, potential new sources have been identified for consideration to fund the anticipated gap between the needs of the transportation system and projected available revenues.
TECHNICAL SERIES 6: PRIORITIZATION PROCESS
This technical report looks at different types of criteria used to score and evaluate transportation projects for the 2045 Plan. The performance measure methodology will be the basis for how projects are prioritized.
TECHNICAL SERIES 7: FREIGHT & GOODS MOVEMENT
This report includes information on moving freight and goods in the Central Florida region. Freight mobility needs and opportunities are considered in the 2045 Plan to support the economy.
