2020-2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan
The ATP advances the regional priorities of Central Ohio’s 2020-2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), which identifies priority transportation strategies and projects in our region. Specifically, the MTP includes strategies for implementing projects that include pedestrian, bicycle, and transit accommodations – or complete streets – on the region’s road network, as well as stand-alone bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The ATP is a resource for communities within the Metropolitan Planning Organization in advancing the strategies and developing local active transportation projects.
MORPC Complete Streets Policy
Complete Streets ensure all users, regardless of mode of travel, have a safer and more comfortable way to reach their destination. The first MORPC Complete Streets policy was adopted in 2010. In 2021, the policy was updated to align with current best practices. The ATP complements the 2021 Complete Streets policy by providing relevant roadway design guidance for projects receiving MORPC-attributable funding.
LinkUS Mobility Initiative
Active transportation is an important component of the LinkUS regional mobility initiative. LinkUS builds on previous regional studies including insight2050 and insight2050 Corridor Concepts with an equitable approach to multi-modal transportation as well as housing and job growth.
Other Regional Initiatives
The ATP is consistent with the goals and objectives of other regional initiatives including the Regional Sustainability Agenda, Central Ohio Transportation Safety Plan, and Central Ohio Greenways.
