2018 Connecticut Statewide Long-Range Transportation Plan

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) submitted its 2018 Long-Range Transportation Plan (Plan) to FHWA and FTA in March of 2018. The Plan was prepared in pursuant to U.S. Code Title 49, Section 5304, and U.S. Code Title 23, Section 135. The Plan is available by clicking the link below

What is the Long Range Transportation Plan?

The Plan is a federally mandated policy document that outlines strategies and actions for addressing transportation issues and needs in Connecticut.   It will serve as a framework for preparing future, project-specific transportation plans such as CTDOT’s State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The Plan is generally updated every three to five years. This Plan covers the period from 2018 through 2050.

Why Update the Long Range Transportation Plan?

Over time, changes occur in transportation needs, travel behavior, methods used to manage traffic, and the ability to pay for transportation system maintenance and improvements. The Plan is an important step toward reassessing Connecticut’s policies for addressing our State’s current and future mobility needs. It provides the framework for prioritizing Connecticut’s transportation projects and programs.
