Technical Reports

The planning process is very detailed and includes a number of technical reports. These reports demonstrate the level of technical effort that goes into the development of the Long Range Transportation Plan.

2040 LONG RANGE TRANSPORTATION PLAN: OVERVIEW

This document provides a detailed overview of the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan, including an introduction to the supporting technical reports. Goals and strategies for the plan are also included.

2040 LONG RANGE TRANSPORTATION PLAN: PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT REPORT

During the two-year public involvement process, MetroPlan Orlando focused on widespread outreach using extensive visualization and electronic publication, as a key component of the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan development.

TECHNICAL REPORT 1: SUSTAINABLE LAND USE FORECAST

Sustainable land use emphasizes principles that support a balanced transportation system. This report focuses on smart growth land use that produces fewer vehicle miles traveled, lower vehicle hours traveled, reduced urban sprawl, and best use of the regional investment in commuter rail and other transit improvements.

TECHNICAL REPORT 2: FINANCIAL RESOURCES

The Long Range Transportation Plan is required to be financially feasible, meaning project costs must match expected revenues. This report discusses various options for funding transportation in Central Florida.

TECHNICAL REPORT 4: CONGESTION MANAGEMENT PROCESS

As part of the development of the long range plan, MetroPlan Orlando is required by federal law to develop a congestion management process. The process helps Central Florida make the best use of existing transportation networks and addresses congestion and safety. This report discusses development and outcomes of the process.

TECHNICAL REPORT 5: TRANSIT ELEMENT

The 2040 Plan continues the increased emphasis on mass transit. This report documents the analysis of transit viability across the region’s major corridors. Also included in this report is the 2040 Transit Blueprint, the region’s transit needs, as well as the cost feasible transit network.

TECHNICAL REPORT 6: BICYCLE & PEDESTRIAN

A balanced transportation system takes into account the various modes of transportation that a community relies upon, including bicycle and pedestrian elements. This report focuses on providing connectivity and mobility in the bicycle and pedestrian network while identifying a prioritized list of bicycle, pedestrian, and trail projects.

TECHNICAL REPORT 7: FREIGHT MOBILITY

An efficient transportation system takes into account the need to move goods and services in support of continued regional economic growth. This report summarizes work conducted under the Central Florida Freight Mobility Study including commodity flows, freight facilities, and forecasts for Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties.

TECHNICAL REPORT 8: Orlando Urban Area transportation Study (ouats) MODEL VALIDATION/GUIDELINES

To complete the extensive technical analysis for the long range plan, engineers and planners use computerized travel demand models to forecast future trips and predict where transportation improvements are needed. This report discusses the model in depth and includes information on socioeconomics, external trips, trip generation, trip distribution, mode choice, highway assignment, and transit assignment.

OUATS 2040: TRAVEL DEMAND MODEL FILES

A complete set of OUATS 2040 travel demand model files were developed with the FDOT approved model application Cube 6.1.0, in line with Florida Standard Urban Transportation Model Structure (FSUTMS) standards. For access to the model files or additional information on the model, please contact Nick Lepp, manager of long range planning, at nlepp@metroplanorlando.org.
