MULTIPLAN 2045 Soon to be Complete

Following two years of preparation, the Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) and three of the state’s Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) are nearing completion of MULTIPLAN 2045 (Mississippi’s Unified Long-Range Transportation Infrastructure Plan for the year 2045). Before plans are finalized, we would like your comments!

MULTIPLAN 2045 is a coordinated effort to develop MDOT’s statewide long-range transportation plan and the plans for the Central Mississippi Planning and Development District (CMPDD) MPO, the Hattiesburg-Petal-Forrest-Lamar (HPFL) MPO, and the Gulf Regional Planning Commission (GRPC) MPO. It includes four separate plans that are developed simultaneously for consistency. MULTIPLAN 2045 addresses our transportation needs over a 25-year horizon and is updated every five years.

Review Draft Plans

The proposed statewide long-range transportation plan along with the GRPC MPO and HPFL MPO Metropolitan Transportation Plans are available for review and comment Oct. 16 – Nov. 30.

The 45-day comment period for the CMPDD Metropolitan Transportation Plan that began Sept. 19, 2020 has now ended.

Review and make comments on all plans.

All comments received during the official comment periods will be considered prior to plan adoption.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Each MPO is a federally mandated body responsible for transportation planning in an Urbanized Area (population of at least 50,000). MPOs coordinate the transportation planning process and programs for counties and jurisdictions within the urbanized areas and work with MDOT in developing a truly comprehensive long-range transportation plan.

MPOs are directed by boards with diverse membership, including representatives from local government and transportation authorities.
