It All Starts with Planning: Why your Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) Matters
on May 17, 2023 at 2 pm Alaska Daylight Time, presented by Miles Brookes, a Tribal Coordinator for FHWA Office of Tribal Transportation to Alaska Tribes. Please follow this link to join us for the presentation detailed below.
The purpose of transportation planning is to address current and future transportation, land use, economic development, traffic demand, public safety, health, and social needs. A Tribal government performs transportation planning to analyze existing and future transportation facilities serving the Tribal community under changing conditions to make informed investment decisions. Planning can be done for both the short and long term. The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), is a long-term (20+ year) strategy and capital improvement program developed to guide the effective investment of TTP funds in multimodal transportation facilities. Tribal governments administering the Tribal Transportation Program (TTP) have ownership of their transportation planning activities by determining what long-range transportation planning areas benefit their community’s vision and goals.
Join the Alaska Tribal Technical Assistance Program (TTAP) for a webinar session covering the importance of keeping a Tribe’s LRTP current including:
