Franklin County Metropolitan Planning Organization (FCMPO)

Who We Are

A Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is a transportation policy-making and decision-making entity made up of community members representing transportation and business interests, and local and state governments.

MPOs are mandated to implement the metropolitan transportation planning process outlined in the federal transportation regulations (23 USC 134 and 49 USC 5303). The MPO coordinates with PennDOT in planning for the transportation needs of the county.

The MPO is responsible for developing a unified planning work program, updating the transportation improvement program and preparing a long range transportation plan among other planning tasks.

2023 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)
The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) serves as a guide for improving, operating, maintaining our surface transportation system, and identifies existing and potential future transportation improvement needs. This plan will be used by transportation officials and decision-makers to guide the expenditure of transportation dollars over the next 20 years. The LRTP has a multi-modal focus including roadways, public transportation, bicycle/pedestrian, freight, and rail. The plan also looks at the effect transportation has on land use and economic development throughout the region; the environment and transportation; develops strategies to achieve regional goals and objectives; contains a fiscally-constrained list of regional transportation investments, and uses performance-based planning to ensure efficient use of public resources.
