What is a Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP)?
The MTP provides a twenty-year approach to identify transportation problems in the region and provide a guide to potential solutions. The MTP also contains a financial constraint list of transportation projects which will be constructed over the next 20-years. With inputs from local stakeholders and the general public, the plan identifies existing transportation needs, establishes a vision, and prioritizes investments to facilitate a safe, efficient, multi-modal, and sustainable transportation system. The MTP also evaluates the region’s efforts to meet national and local performance measures and targets.
What is the planning area?
The BTPO Planning Area runs from the Portneuf Gap north along with the Pocatello and Bannock Mountain ranges until it reaches the Fort Hall Indian Reservation. The BTPO Planning area is just over 100 square miles and includes the cities of Pocatello and Chubbuck. The Planning Area also includes the boundaries of the Portneuf Valley Attainment Area for air quality. (BTPO Planning Area Map)
