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 and the 2022-2026 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).

University Parkway Corridor Management and Land Use Plan

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. The team of Rundell Ernstberger Associates, Lochmueller Group, and Power’s Engineering Inc will be assisting the APC and the EMPO throughout the planning process.
