Every five years, ACOG produces a new Metropolitan Transportation Plan, or MTP, that creates a long-term vision of our regional transportation system. The MTP, called Encompass 2040, looks twenty-five years into the future to guide Central Oklahoma’s management, operation, and investment of billions of transportation dollars. With an expected completion date of spring 2016, Encompass 2040 includes projections of regional land use, population, employment, and travel to depict Central Oklahoma in 2040 and the challenges and opportunities therein. Although number-crunching and data analysis are vital to Encompass 2040, no less important is the input from Central Oklahomans like you. We’ve got a variety of ways you can talk with us to find out more about Encompass 2040, our work, your vision of Central Oklahoma’s transportation future and how we can work together to create a plan that finds solutions, accomplishes our region’s goals and illustrates a Central Oklahoma firmly in the 21st century.
