What is the 2040 Regional Plan


The RTP identifies the most significant transportation investments needed to meet growing travel demands throughout the Southeast Florida region (Broward, Miami-Dade, Palm Beach Counties). The horizon year of 2040 is chosen to provide time for agencies to assemble funds and complete the technical work required to design and construct the selected improvements.

Important elements of the 2040 RTP include:

  • ESTIMATES OF GROWTH OVER THE NEXT 25 YEARS: Estimate the number of residents and jobs that will come to southeast Florida by 2040.
  • GOALS FOR ACCOMMODATING GROWTH: Plan for anticipated growth to effectively manage limited financial resources for transportation system investments.
  • REGIONALLY SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENTS: Prioritize projects that better meet the goals of the 2040 RTP.
  • FUNDING TO IMPLEMENT THE 2040 RTP: Develop a financial plan that outlines anticipated funding sources and mechanisms to implement strategies of the 2040 RTP.
  • A COMPLETE REGIONAL PICTURE: Ensure that the 2040 RTP addresses anticipated transportation needs for all stakeholder groups throughout the region.

 

Why is the 2040 RTP important?  

We are the fourth largest urbanized area in the US. To compete in the national and global marketplace, we need an efficient and effective transportation system. To provide desirable communities and cities, we must provide options for how we travel to work and school, to meet daily needs, and for recreation. No matter where we are in the region and where we are going, we need a transportation system that is safe to travel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What does “REGIONAL” mean and how does the 2040 RTP differ from my MPO's ? 2040 Plan?

To help describe REGIONAL – think of I-95, Turnpike, Tri-Rail, SR-7/US 441, Dolphin Expressway, and I-595. These facilities carry a majority of travelers and they traverse the region. Also, REGIONAL relates to major intermodal hubs such as the Tri-Rail Stations, the Miami Intermodal Center, and our airports and seaports. For a listing of all the regional facilities, please visit SEFTC.org.

Your MPO’s 2040 Plan includes these major regional facilities, but has a focus on helping residents, businesses, and tourists meet their travel needs while traveling within the county. In a nutshell, the 2040 RTP is the key tool linking transportation plans between the Broward (Commitment 2040), and the Miami-Dade (Mobility Options 2040), and Palm Beach (Directions 2040) MPOs.


What is the process and schedule?

The RTP began in January 2013 and was adopted October 27, 2015.
