OUR REGIONAL METROPOLITAN
Why We Do It
Metropolitan Transportation Plans (MTPs) establish a long-range vision for improvements in our transportation systems and infrastructure. They consider and incorporate everything from biking and pedestrian trails (non-motorized facilities), to traffic congestion, safety issues, road condition, and public transit.
Mid-Michigan is at the intersection of major highways, rail lines, trail systems, waterways, and an international airport, all of which affect our economy, the environment, and the safety and accessibility of our community members. The MTP plays a critical role in guiding the selection of transportation projects in our local communities that will integrate these characteristics and concerns.
Moving Mid-Michigan is the Greater Lansing region's 25-year outlook on the specific transportation needs in our area. Its goals support moving people, moving forward, and moving in the right direction for our future.
