KYTC’s Long-Range Statewide Transportation Plan (LRSTP)

The mission of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is to provide Kentuckians and travelers with a safe, efficient, environmentally sound and fiscally responsible transportation system. Our transportation network extends beyond bridges and highways and must meet the needs of the Commonwealth’s diverse and growing population

KYTC’s Long-Range Statewide Transportation Plan (LRSTP) is a planning document that identifies the goals, policies, needs, and analysis tools that set the direction of Kentucky’s transportation system toward 2045. Transportation keeps us connected to what matters most. Everyone has a role to play in the planning process to help shape the state’s long-term, multi-modal transportation vision that will build a better Kentucky now and well into the future.

To help Kentucky build a vision for the future, we want to know more about where you want to go and how you want to get there. Take the short survey to make sure your voice is heard on priorities for Kentucky's highways, bridges, sidewalks, bike lanes, buses, waterways, airports, riverports, railroads, and more. The survey will be available from October 22 to December 6, 2021. The online survey, as well as more information, can be found at GetThereTogetherKY.org. PDF versions of the survey can be found, here: English survey or Spanish survey.

MTP 2045 Amendment, TIP 2022-2026, and Conformity Documentation

The MTP 2045 Amendment and the 2022–2026 TIP guide the region’s decision-making process related to road, bridge, transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and freight projects using Federal funds in Vanderburgh, Warrick and Henderson counties. The MTP is a guide for major transportation projects through the year 2045. The TIP identifies funding for transportation projects over the immediate short-term of five years. The associated draft Conformity Documentation demonstrates that the amended MTP 2045 (Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) 2045 Amendment) and the 2022–2026 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) meet the Clean Air Act and Transportation Conformity rule requirements for the 1997 ozone standards.

Transit Asset Management Plan

The Transit Asset Management (TAM) Plan identifies the conditions of METS’ and HART’s current assets and helps prioritize funding to replace assets beyond their useful life. Through this process, the transit agencies can efficiently replace assets with available funding and keep the transit systems in a State of Good Repair (SGR).

The Vanderburgh County Commissioners, Evansville-Vanderburgh County Area Plan Commission (APC), and Evansville Metropolitan Planning Organization (EMPO) have partnered to create the University Parkway Corridor Management and Land Use Plan.
