Long Range Transportation Plan Adoption

On September 17, 2019 the Wright County Board of Commissioners adopted the Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), a document that will prepare the County’s transportation system for continued growth and corresponding travel needs over the next 20+ years.

The Wright County 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan identified issues into specific, actionable initiatives and strategies.

The development of the LRTP was guided by a Stakeholders Committee and other key study partners, cities, townships, and the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT). Important plan elements include:

· Assessment of existing conditions and identification of critical needs.

· Establishment of long-term goals, objectives, and performance measures.

· Preparation of 25-year traffic forecasts.

· A future system planning analysis that proposes roadway improvements, and functional classification changes, as part of a 20+ year multimodal transportation system.

· Preparation of plan implementation strategies and funding opportunities to advance recommended system improvements.
