The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) jointly finalized new rules to improve coordination of transportation planning by metropolitan planning organizations across the nation. The rule promotes more effective regional prioritization of multi-modal investments through better coordination among local governments and MetroPlan Orlando.
MetroPlan Orlando, through the assistance of the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSMO) Committee, and Community Advisory Committee (CAC) developed a framework that incorporates the rules developed by FHWA and FTA. The process addresses critical regional needs and establishes targets for measuring success and performance.
The Planning Process presentation below summarizes the performance measures and targets that MetroPlan Orlando will use to develop the next list of priority projects, and the Long Range Transportation Plan Addendum summarizes how this process will be used with the adopted Long Range Transportation Plan and development of the Prioritized Project List.
This performance-based planning addendum was adopted in phases by unanimous votes of the the MetroPlan Orlando Board (2/14/18, 6/13/18, 11/14/18, & 2/13/19).
