CONGESTION MANAGEMENT PROCESS
The Congestion Management Process (CMP) provides the information needed to manage current and future congestion in the MetroPlan Orlando area. The CMP identifies existing congestion-related impacts and improvement strategies for both people and goods, and includes a monitoring program that will periodically assess the effectiveness of the strategies over time.
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.
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.
TECHNICAL SERIES 8: SCENARIO PLANNING – BACKGROUND & DEVELOPMENT
This technical report outlines the process for identifying four potential futures to guide the development of the 2045 Plan – Traditional Trends, Disruption Dilemmas, Technology Transformations, and Climate Consequences. It also includes an overview of the methodology, data analysis, key drivers, and results of scenario development.
TECHNICAL SERIES 9: PEDESTRIAN & BICYCLIST NEEDS ASSESSMENT
This technical report looks at the existing pedestrian and bicycle network in the region and identifies gaps, needed projects, and resources to fill those gaps in the network. This document also identifies specific supportive strategies for each of the 2045 Plan’s goals and objectives as they relate to walking and cycling.
TECHNICAL SERIES 10: Health & ENVIRONMENTAL SCREENING
This technical report describes the approach taken to evaluate the potential impacts projects may have on public health and the environment. This document also talks about resiliency strategies and implementation responsibilities that will guide the development of new transportation infrastructure.

Technical Series 12: Multimodal Needs
This technical series describes the process and provides a summary of the Multimodal Needs identified as part of the 2045 Plan.
Technical Series 13: System Performance Report
This document outlines the System Performance Report, which presents the condition and performance of the transportation system with respect to required federal and state performance measures, and documents performance targets. It also reports on progress achieved in meeting the targets in comparison with previous reports.
PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PLAN
