What is connect 2040?

Adopted in December of 2020 and then amended in November of 2021, Connect 2040 is the guiding document for the future of our region’s multi-modal transportation system over the next twenty years. It’s the blueprint for how we can achieve our vision to Enhance Mobility, Strengthen Communities, and Generate Prosperity.


Long-range transportation plans are federally-required documents, standard throughout the United States. These plans walk through regional transportation needs of today while also examining future challenges. In our region, there are 100-plus projects that have been identified as a potential need over the next twenty years but the MPO has also identified a fiscally-constrained project list (a list of projects we can reasonably afford).
