The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) serves as a blueprint that details how the existing transportation system works and how local residents would like it to work in the future. In addition, it considers the protection of the value of investments already made in developing the transportation system, while providing resources to pursue innovative solutions to mobility constraints and enhancing travel choices available.
The plan includes both long-range and short-range program strategies/actions that lead to the development of an integrated intermodal transportation system that facilitates the efficient movement of people and goods. The plan has several elements:
The LRTP guides the Columbus-Phenix City Metropolitan Area's transportation development over a 25-year period. Updated every five years, the plan takes into consideration existing conditions, local needs, and anticipated growth in the region. The plan encompasses, the Columbus and Fort Benning area in Georgia and Phenix City, Russell County and Lee County in Alabama.
