The Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), is updated every four years, and acts as a blue-print for guiding elected officials toward meeting the transportation needs of their constituencies. It spells out how the county’s transportation resources should be managed and serves as the frame-work for transportation investment decisions through the year 2035. In 2016, the MPO sought public input through a number of outreach methods to update the the most recent plan for 2017-2040. In January 2017, the MPO Council adopted the document. Adoption of the Plan helps enable Kent County to comply with stringent federal Clean Air requirements, and in doing so, allow unrestricted use of millions of dollars in transportation funding.
