CBMPO Long-Range Transportation Plan


This document serves as the defining vision for the CBMPO transportation systems and services and indicates all of the transportation improvements, particularly those using federal funds, scheduled for funding over the next 20 years within Bartow County and its local governments. The plan also must be coordinated with the transportation plans of the Greater Atlanta and Gainesville-Hall County areas due to Bartow County being included within the air quality nonattainment zone for the Atlanta Metropolitan Area in regards to the pollutant standards for ozone and particulate matter. This plan, once developed, is updated every five years.

Community Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is in process of being adopted!

The CBMPO is required to update the LRTP every four years. We are now in the process of adopting our vision of the transportation needs of this community between now and the Year 2050. Within the thirty years we need to accommodate the transportation and mobility needs of employers and employees, families, disabled individuals, and the elderly. The document is on the agenda for the January 15 meeting of the Technical Coordinating Committee and the February 5 meeting of the CBMPO Policy Committee. The document is 186 pages long so be aware of the possibility of a long wait time should you want to download the document.

Final FY 2050 CBMPO Long-Range Transportation Plan

This notice of public involvement activities and time established for public review and comment on the LRTP and TIP will satisfy the  Program of Projects (POP) requirements of the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5307 Program. The CBMPO 2050 Long-Range Transportation Plan and 2020-2024 Transportation Improvement Program are scheduled to be adopted by February 2020.

The Long-Range Transportation Plan changes from time to time to reflect changes in timing, funding, and scope. Changes to projects that are exempt from federal oversight, or do not impact project description, capacity, or termini and otherwise do not impact air quality conformity are allowed as administrative modifications. These typically occur when funding shifts from one year to the next or minor changes occur within the project. Amendments occur with major changes to a project that change scope, termini, incur major changes in budgeted federal funds and/or involve the addition of new projects that affect air quality conformity. These changes are noted below:
