Background:
Produced by the Palm Beach Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and updated every five years, the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) sets the framework for a balanced and forward thinking transportation system.

The Directions 2040 Plan is an update to plan to the year 2040. Formulated over a two-year process, it maps out the next 25 years of state and federal transportation system investments in Palm Beach County. It provides for investments in new transportation services and improvements such as premium transit service; new mass transit lines; major roadway improvements and new interchanges; new bicycle facilities, sidewalks, and multi-use paths; new vehicular and pedestrian bridges.  The overall goal of the Directions 2040 Plan is to ensure a transportation system that remains accessible to all regardless of income, age, or physical ability, while feeding into the economic viability of Palm Beach County.

The Directions 2040 LRTP will also coordinate with the 2040 Southeast Florida Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).  For more information on the RTP which addresses regional transportation projects and issues throughout Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties, visit www.SEFTC.org.
