CLRP: Financially Constrained Long-Range Transportation Plan

The CLRP is a statement of the ways the region plans to invest in its transportation system over the next 20 to 30 years. The plan includes regionally significant projects and programs that seek to facilitate the efficient movement of people and goods using a variety of transportation modes. It also outlines all anticipated spending on operations and maintenance of the current and future transportation system over the same timeframe.

The TPB is responsible for developing and maintaining the CLRP. The TPB adopts a major update to the CLRP once every four years which includes the completion of a comprehensive financial analysis indicating how the region expects to invest in the transportation system. In addition, the TPB amends the CLRP every year to include new  projects and programs and to make changes to projects already in the plan as priorities at the local, state, and regional levels change and as funding for new initiatives is identified. Any project that might affect future air quality by adding or removing highway or transit capacity is considered to be “regionally significant” and must be included in the plan, as must any project that will require federal funding or federal approval during the timespan that the CLRP covers. 

The CLRP website serves as the primary documentation of the Plan.
