Long Range Transportation Planning (LRTP) is a cooperative, coordinated, communication-driven process by which long and short-range transportation improvement priorities are determined which impact the Environment, the Economy, Land Use, Social Equality and Safety. In this 3.5-hour class, students will receive guidance on the basic components of the LRTP which include the plans, programs and process. A fun “LRTP Jeopardy” competition will challenge the participants knowledge of commonly used acronyms and abbreviations, some tribal history, and general knowledge about the planning process.
After successfully completing Long Range Transportation Planning, participants should be able to: 1. Understand importance of the “3 C’s”, Continuing, Cooperative, and Comprehensive. 2. Become familiar with how projects are selected and how funds are distributed. 3. Understand the benefits and key products of the LRTP.
