Roadway Planning by the Jacksonville Metropolitan Planning Organization
The Jacksonville Metropolitan Planning Organization is actively planning for the future transportation needs of the region. In metropolitan areas, MPOs are responsible for leading a cooperative regional transportation planning process. Some MPOs have additional responsibilities such as economic development and land use planning under limited authority embodied in state and federal law; however, the Federal Highway Administration establishes five core functions for MPOs:
Establish and manage a fair and impartial setting for effective regional decision-making in the metropolitan area.
Evaluate transportation alternatives options
Maintain a Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)
Fosters mobility and access for people and goods
Efficient system performance and preservation
Improving quality of life
Develop a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)
Involve the public
