2042 Metropolitan Transportation Plan Update
The video and information below explains who we are, the importance of the MOVE 2042 transportation plan, the plan development process, and timeline for the project.
Move 2042 is the Metropolitan Transportation Plan for the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Planning Area. This plan will focus on both short-term and long-term transportation improvements in the urban areas of Ascension, East Baton Rouge, Iberville, Livingston, and West Baton Rouge parishes. It is both data-driven and considerate of public and stakeholder input. MOVE2042 is a federally mandated plan. For any major transportation project in the Capital Area to become implemented, regardless of funding source, it must be included in the Metropolitan Transportation Plan. To keep up with the community's changing needs, the plan is updated every four years. MOVE2042 addresses not only traditional forms of transportation but also includes transportation by means of public transit, walking and biking. Lastly, MOVE2042 is fiscally constrained meaning only projects that can reasonably be expected to have adequate funding can be included in the implementation program. The process for establishing both estimated costs and revenues is critical for the creation of a viable long-range transportation plan.
CRPC gathers input from stakeholders and the public to set transportation priorities. MOVE2042 participants locate transportation problem areas, and mark transportation needs.
Community residents are the best resource for predicting area growth patterns. With the public's assistance, we can accurately accommodate growing areas to meet their needs.

WORKING WITH ELECTED OFFICIALS
The MOVE2042 planning process involves elected officials, stakeholders from the state and other planning agencies to make sure our plans align. By doing this, we can ensure MOVE2042's effectiveness.
