Metropolitan Transportation Plan

The Metropolitan Transportation Plan, or MTP, is updated every five years. The MTP is a long-range fiscally constrained transportation plan.

The MTP defines how the region's transportation system will develop over at least a 20-year period. The MTP must be based on goals and objectives developed through a visioning process. This process must include input from the public and private sectors, and be coordinated with the goals and objectives of local and state long-range plans. Destinations 2045 (the 2045 MTP) was approved by the Policy Board on December 4, 2019.

2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan Amendment Two

On October 7, 2020, the MTP was amended to remove the Bush/Wellborn grade separation project from the Fiscally Constrained Project list and add a note to the table that both the Texas Department of Transportation Bryan District and the B/CS MPO consider this to be the region’s highest priority unfunded project.

Draft 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan Amendment Three

On June 1, 2022, the MTP was amended to show total project costs in the Fiscally Constrained tables. To meet the requirement to show total project costs and improve overall transparency, there were two changes being made to the MTP.  First, in the fiscally constrained project table, two columns were added. The first column is Additional Project Funding Provided By Others which covers the non-construction costs. The second column is Total Project Costs which adds construction and non-construction costs. Second, text was added to Chapter 6C to explain what the non-construction costs are and that the MPO is using 20% of construction costs to reflect additional funding provided by others (Texas Department of Transportation, localities, etc.) needed to deliver projects.

Draft 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan Amendment Four

The MPO is seeking public comment on the Destinations 2045: Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) Amendment Four until November 28, 2022.  The MTP is being amended to address significant changes to project funding, timelines and project prioritization for construction as a result of the adoption of the Unified Transportation Program (UTP) by the Texas Transportation Commission in August of this year. Among others, that UTP increased funding for: a) the State Highway 6 expansion project; b) included a significant contribution from the Texas Transportation Commission’s Strategic Priority Discretionary Fund for the Bush/Wellborn interchange; c) allows for the Texas Avenue project between State Highway 21 and University Drive to be completed with a shared use path and sidewalks as envisioned; d) widens and improves safety on FM 1179 between FM 158/Boonville Road to Easterling Drive, and e) amends several Texas Department of Transportation job control numbers. Additional changes are being made to project descriptions for State Highway 21 between Texas Avenue and State Highway 6, FM 1179 as mentioned above and FM 2154 from William D. Fitch to Greens Prairie Road.
