The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is an important document that serves as a guide for the future development and maintenance of the Peoria-Pekin Urbanized Area transportation system. The document covers a 25-year period and identifies current and future needs based on population projections and travel demand. The plan is updated every five years to reflect the changing dynamics of the region. Projects must be included in the LRTP to receive federal funding.
The Long Range Transportation Plan 2045 was adopted by the PPUATS Policy Committee in June 2020 and identifies transportation needs in the PPUATS region out to 2045. As the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Peoria-Pekin Urbanized Area, PPUATS is the lead agency responsible for developing and maintaining the region’s LRTP.
