The Palm Beach TPA is developing a federally-required LRTP for our region, Vison 2050. Local transportation partners submitted projects for consideration through December 2023.
The TPA’s LRTP guides federal and state transportation investments in our county. Local project submissions assist the TPA with planning and programming new projects. These submissions will allow the TPA to:
- Demonstrate federal planning consistency
- Screen project readiness
- Identify local matching funds for federal discretionary grants
- Fund local needs that are feasible based on expected revenues
Staff will review all project submissions and may contact applicants for any clarification needed. Application fields may be revised based on these discussions, or to clarify project assumptions.
Local project applications are one factor in the TPA’s multimodal needs assessment. A broader assessment of regional needs, combined with project submissions, will inform future project screening, scenario development, and prioritization processes leading up to the LRTP adoption in late 2024.
