Public Invited to Review Candidate Projects on Interactive Map for 2024-2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan

Public comment period end September 8 at 5 p.m.

The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) has available for review and public comment projects under consideration for inclusion in the 2024-2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). The 2024-2050 MTP covers the MORPC transportation planning area, including Delaware and Franklin counties, Bloom and Violet townships in Fairfield County, New Albany, Pataskala, and Etna Township in Licking County, and Jerome Township in Union County.

“This MTP update coincides with strong regional growth and paves the way for necessary progress. With each update, it’s critical that we adapt and align strategies to improve the quality of life in our changing communities and empower mobility for diverse residents. Our commitment to innovative solutions and sustainable infrastructure ensures a resilient and efficient transportation system.“

The MTP will include highway, pedestrian, bikeway, and public transportation facilities, including improvements identified by the Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) and Delaware County Transit (DCT). Federal funding may be sought in the future for projects included in the MTP. Additionally, the MTP will consider effects upon low-income and minority residents and will include an air quality conformity analysis. The plan is for horizon year 2050.
