Transportation Plan Update

City of Great Falls Montana

Great Falls Area Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)
Update Under Way

The City of Great Falls, Cascade County and the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) have initiated a community transportation planning process to update their existing Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP).  The Plan provides a blueprint for guiding transportation infrastructure investments based on identified needs.

The LRTP is intended to facilitate community goals and improve the transportation infrastructure and services within the Great Falls area to meet the needs of existing and future demands.  The Plan will address all modes of transportation in a balanced attempt to meet current and future needs while complying with State and Federal requirements.

Participation is a very important part of the process, and citizens are encouraged to stay informed and participate.  Opinion, comments and concerns may be submitted by mail to Jeff Key, Project Manager, Robert Peccia and Associates, PO Box 5653, Helena, MT. 59604, or by email to jeff [dot] key [at] rpa-hln [dot] com
Please indicate comments are for the Great Falls Area LRTP.  RPA and the project partners will collect and consider all comments to better understand the potential transportation system issues and concerns within the Great Falls area.

Future announcements will be made prior to all events through the local media and the LRTP mailing list.  Interested parties are encouraged to join the study mailing list by submitting their name and contact information to Jeff Key at jeff [dot] key [at] rpa-hln [dot] com
