MTP 2050 and Conformity Documentation, TIP 2024-2028, and Coordinated Public Transit Human Services Plan

The MTP 2050 and the 2024–2028 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 2050. The TIP identifies funding for transportation projects over the immediate short-term of five years. Included in the MTP is the Conformity Documentation which demonstrates the MTP 2050 and the 2024-2028 TIP meet the Clean Air Act and Transportation Conformity rule requirements.

The Evansville Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) had a review and comment period from January 25, 2023 through February 24, 2023 for the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) 2050, the 2024–2028 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), and Coordinated Public Transit Human Services Plan.
