The Region 2 Planning Commission is starting on the development of the 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan. This is the is the official transportation plan for the Jackson Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), and forms the basis for future transportation funding decisions. The plan identifies transportation-related projects and policies, and is for all transportation modes and facilities – transit, rail, pedestrians, bicycles, freight, roads and vehicles, etc. The last plan was completed 5 years ago, and federal law requires an updated plan every 5 years.

For more information, questions, or comments, please contact Tanya DeOliveira, Transportation Planner at tdeoliveira@co.jackson.mi.us or (517)745-9041.


Financial Analysis Draft Chapter is Available for Public Comment
