The Draft Siouxland Regional Transportation Planning Association (SRTPA) FY 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan is in now open to public comment and review. Please view the document online at: http://www.simpco.org/transportation/srtpalongrange.html
The LRTP is developed by SIMPCO transportation planning staff with input from the Technical Advisory Committee and the Policy Board of the SRTPA. The Iowa Department of Transportation (IA DOT) also provides input in the development of the LRTP.
Under the guidance of the 2012 Safe, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) this plan addresses the deficiencies of the existing transportation system in the SRTPA planning area, analyzes the projected demand on that system, and identifies projects and policies to both preserve and enhance mobility.
The SRTPA is in the process of developing the Draft FY 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan, with approval scheduled for November 20, 2014. A Public Input Meeting will be held on October 14, 2014 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm at the City of Le Mars Council Chambers and on October 28, 2014 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm at the Correctionville Community Center. This will give the public an opportunity to view the Draft FY 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan and provide the SIMPCO staff with valuable comments.

The public comment period will end on November 7, 2014
