Major Transportation Corridor Plans are a critical step in creating effective and efficient transportation infrastructure that is ready to meet future needs. Well in advance of a road or bridge design and construction, recommendations from the plan address and prioritize community needs such as road improvements to accommodate new development, connections between rural and urban areas, right-of-way preservation to accommodate long-range needs, and options to serve other means of travel such as walking and biking. The Plan process allows El Paso County to adequately prepare for the future by considering what services and infrastructure is important to its citizens.
El Paso County has continued to grow and change rapidly in the five years since the last 2040 Major Transportation Corridors Plan (MTCP) was conducted. To accommodate the community growth the El Paso County Public Services Department in coordination with the El Paso County Board of Commissioners and Planning Commission is working to complete an updated plan by December of 2016. The updated plan will build on the results and vision from the 2011 Plan to ensure that there is coordinated capital and service improvement to meet future challenges. We will review and update items like:
- A prioritized list of transportation improvements
- The funding plan for ensuring adequate resources to build the future transportation system
- Right of way preservation needs
- Non-motorized needs
