Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP)

The Capitol Region’s Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) provides a 25-year overview of the anticipated 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 MTP is updated every four years in conformance with federal transportation regulations.

For the current and archived plans, see below. For specific projects scheduled to be funded over the next four years, see the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).

CRCOG has prepared a Draft update of its Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). Additionally, the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) has also conducted an Air Quality Conformity Analysis (AQCA) related to the Draft MTP. Both of these documents are available for public review, and the comment period will end March 26, 2023.
