  • Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro MPO and Capital Area MPO 2035 LRTP– The Research Triangle region in North Carolina covers seven counties and is home to about 1.6 million people. Although this area functions as a single regional economic market, there are 2 MPOs responsible for the long range transportation planning. Starting in 2007, the 2 MPOs departed from their past practice of creating two separate planning documents for the one region. Instead they came together to produce a joint 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan that was adopted in June 2009. http://www.campo-nc.us/LRTP/2035/2035JointLRTP_3-24-09_publicreviewdraft_LT.pdf [PDF]
  • Utah MPOs and Utah State DOT – The Wasatch Front Regional Council, Mountainland Association of Governments, Cache MPO and Dixie MPO worked with the Utah DOT (UDOT) to adobt Utah’s Unified Transportation Plan. This plan is a compilation of the four MPOs regional transportation plans and Utah DOT’s (UDOT) Long Range Transportation Plan. UDOT played a key role in coordinating the statewide transportation plan with the MPO regional plans. These individual plans all utilized common timing, phasing of projects, identical financial assumptions, the same travel demand model, common project cost estimation, and a similar public involvement process.

  • Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission and PDOT and NJDOT — The New Jersey Department of Transportation and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation commissioned DVRPC to prepare the Smart Transportation Guidebook, thus joining two DOT’s and a bi-state MPO to prepare common planning tools and design guidelines that could be used in both states. The Guidebook was developed to help agencies, local governments, developers and others plan and design roadways that fit within the existing and planned context of the community through which they pass. The end goal was to incorporate transportation solutions into the community that were context-sensitive, affordable, supported by the public, and linked land use with transportation.
