Vermont's Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is the State's blueprint for guiding transportation decision-making and investments over the next 20 years. All Vermonter's have a stake in the transportation system's continued development - which may look very different over the course of 20 years.
The growth of new technologies such as autonomous vehicles and 5G cellular networks, demographic changes in the form of an aging population, and evolving changes to the state's primarily services-based economy may require thinking differently about how we plan, build, and manage our transportation system and investments. While maintaining our highways and bridges, public transit, railways, and airports will continue to be major focus areas moving forward, we are likely to focus more on the operational part of our transportation system, such as information systems, signals, and automated message boards and other technology solutions.
Reports and Background Information
Statewide Public Opinion Survey - This survey helped gauge satisfaction levels with the condition of infrastructure, modes of tranportation, and maintenance activities.
We welcome and encourage all Vermonters to provide comments on the data and observations presented, as well as ideas on where transportation policy and investments should focus over the next 20 years.
