2020-2029 Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) and 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) Updates

Posted on October 4, 2021


NOW OPEN: The Gaston Cleveland Lincoln MPO has announced a public comment period for proposed updates to the 2020-2029 Transportation Improvement Plan and 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan. Please see the official announcement below, or visit the TIP and MTP Proposed Amendments webpage for more information. The deadline for public comment is Oct. 31, 2021.



The documents will be available for review and public comments will be received from October 1 – 31, 2021.

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) identifies the transportation projects that GCLMPO and NCDOT plan to undertake over the next ten years. The Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) is the long-range, fiscally-constrained plan that defines the transportation network that will serve both present and projected volumes of vehicular traffic, public transportation use, bicycle, pedestrian, aviation and freight travel in and around the urban area. Federal regulations require the TIP and MTP to be consistent with the NCDOT’s State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).

The GCLMPO’s 2020-2029 TIP and 2045 MTP need to be amended to reflect modifications that have been made to the 2020-2029 STIP for various projects across the GCLMPO planning area.

Additional information can be obtained by visiting the MPO’s website at www.gclmpo.org.

The public may also provide comments during the GCLMPO TCC Meeting on Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at 10:00 am and the Board Meeting on Wednesday, December 1, 2021 at 6:30 pm.

Written comments may also be sent by mail, email, or fax to the following address:
