2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)

The SCTPO governing board adopted the 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan on September 10, 2020. The 2045 LRTP includes two major components in its goal to meet the changing mobility needs of the county:

Identifying what’s needed: The LRTP identifies all the transportation projects that are anticipated to be needed over the next 20 years and how they may affect the transportation system by analyzing factors including county policy, demand from future population and employment growth, changes in transportation technology and community input about what transportation improvements are desired moving forward.

Creating a cost-affordable plan: The LRTP identifies which needs can be funded with available transportation revenues from federal, state and local sources, and will consider all modes of travel. With input from the public and the TPO member communities, the transportation needs are ranked and prioritized using technical criteria developed to be consistent with the National Planning Factors.  

Process Overview:

Phase I (Jan – Dec 2019): Brevard County residents were surveyed to get a general idea of the transportation improvements most needed in our community.

Phase II (Dec 2019 – March 2020): Several options and scenarios are given in a second survey and transportation needs and priorities were determined.

Phase III (May-Oct 2020): The LRTP Plan Document is the synthesis of the entire Long Range Planning Process. The last 2+ years’ worth of work and input from our citizens has been summarized in this user-friendly document. Public comment was solicited on the draft plan from        August 11, 2020 – September 10, 2020. All comments received were presented to the SCTPO board and committees prior to adoption on September 10, 2020, and incorporated into the final documents below.

Previous 2040 LRTP

The 2040 LRTP provided a common vision for the community’s future transportation needs and guides the investment of public funds in transportation facilities, addressing a timeline of 20 or more years. It included both short and long term transportation strategies using multiple modes of transportation for moving people and goods. The 2060 Vision that was developed in this process was also used in the 2045 LRTP update.
