The Capitol Region’s Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) provides a 25-year overview of the major transportation improvements and investments in the Capitol Region. It is a systems level plan that provides general policy guidance by identifying the highest priority transportation needs in the Region and outlining projects and programs to address those needs. The LRTP is updated every four years in conformance with federal transportation regulations.
For the current and archived plans, see the menu on the left. For specific projects scheduled to be funded over the next four years, see the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).

News

The Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) is developing its Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), a plan which lays out a vision for the region’s transportation system over the next 25 years. The MTP is a federally-mandated plan that determines the region’s priorities for spending federal transportation funds in the region. As the region’s Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), CRCOG develops this plan to form the core of its transportation planning program.

In addition to the MTP, CRCOG is seeking input on an Air Quality Conformity Analysis (AQCA) performed by the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) for the 2019 MTP update and the 2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program. Under the Clean Air Act, these plans must be within established budgets for emissions.
