|HORIZON 2040: The Metropolitan Transportation Plan for the Spokane Metropolitan Planning Area|
Horizon 2040, adopted by SRTC's Board in December 2013, is the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) for Spokane County. It is a long-term, multimodal “blueprint” for transportation aimed at meeting the mobility needs of the area through 2040. It is based on projections for growth in population, housing and jobs and considers all mode of transportation, such as private vehicles, public transit, bicycling, walking, freight movement, rail and air travel.
Horizon 2040 includes a financially-constrained list of transportation projects from each of the jurisdictions within Spokane County to construct or complete over the next 20+ years.Proposed 2016 Amendment to Horizon 2040
Horizon 2040 is proposed to be amended in 2016 in order to include three new projects. To be eligible for funding, the projects must be included in the MTP. This allows them to also be amended into the Transportation Improvement Program, where projects are programmed for funding in the next four years.
The amendment also includes an update to the Financial Plan and other additions. The summary sheet below details all the updates proposed for Horizon 2040.
SRTC is asking for input from the public on the proposed amendment. A public comment period runs from February 5 through March 6, 2016 on the changes proposed to Horizon 2040. A public open house will be held Wednesday, March 2 from 4-6 p.m. at SRTC, 221 W. 1st Ave., Suite 310, Spokane, WA 99201 to discuss changes to the plan in detail and gather comments. Those who cannot attend can submit comments by emailing to email@example.com, mailing to SRTC or by calling (509) 343-6370.
