It is the purpose of the Update 2035 to the Transportation Plan for the Sioux City Metropolitan Area to provide all citizens of the Metropolitan Planning Area, the FHWA, FTA, Iowa DOT, NDOR, and SDDOT with the MPO multimodal and intermodal long-range transportation planning vision and initiatives for a minimum of twenty year period ending in the year 2035.
Preparation of the LRTP consisted of compiling background information provided through the U.S. Census, U.S. DOT, Iowa DOT, NDOR, SDDOT, and other named sources. The MPO was responsible for the preparation of this LRTP, with guidance given by local and county officials, the MPO Transportation Technical Committee (TTC), Policy Board, and through citizen input. The information in this plan represents a continuing planning process that will be reviewed and modified every five (5) years.
The purpose of a LRTP is to serve as a guiding document of information on existing transportation related systems and to project future needs based on locally derived goals, and objectives to support growth in the Metropolitan Planning Area.
This LRTP is not a funding plan, but a framework for the selection of future transportation projects based on identifying areas of need and developing a means of addressing such while maintaining a “fiscal constraint,” a requirement of SAFETEA-LU.
The MPO 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan was approved and adopted on January 6, 2011. The next update to the MPO Long Range Transportation Plan will be approved in January 2016.
