Thoroughfare Plan

The Thoroughfare Plan is a long-range plan that identifies the location and type of roadway facilities that are needed to meet the projected long-­term growth in the region. The purpose of this plan is to provide consistency of roadway standards among the member cities, counties and agencies. This plan also serves as a tool for jurisdictions within the MPO, which will help to reserve land for future corridors for transportation system development. The Thoroughfare Plan also includes information related to roadway classification, right­-of-way requirements, and number of through travel lanes for each thoroughfare. Projects listed in the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) are part of this plan.
