As the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the metropolitan Columbus planning area, MORPC conducts a continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive transportation planning process, with a 20-year horizon, that results in producing a Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) and Transportation Improvement Program for the region.
The MTP is a long range planning document that identifies transportation deficiencies, policies, strategies and projects over the next two decades. It is updated on a four-year cycle. MORPC coordinates the development of the MTP with communities throughout Central Ohio and with other local, state and federal agencies. The MTP makes the greater Columbus region eligible to receive a large amount of federal transportation funding to improve, maintain and operate highways, public transit, bikeways, sidewalks, and related facilities.
