Long-Range Transportation Plan

local image with regional and transportation visionsPlan goals and strategies

The Kansas City region is known for its affordability, vibrant urban and suburban communities, and a range of big-city amenities with small-town character. While the region boasts many positive qualities, it, like much of the nation, is grappling with a range of complex challenges. Greater Kansas City is experiencing a slow recovery from a depressed economy, an aging road and bridge network, an aging population, changing climate, fluctuating energy prices and dwindling financial resources.

Local, national and global dynamics require a clear forward-leaning vision regarding the region, its infrastructure and the social, environmental and economic capacities. Plans must be created in a more holistic, integrated manner for a successful future.
