Title:+Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) Coordination 

The rulemaking would provide methods for improving MPO coordination in the transportation planning process, recognizing the critical role that transportation plays in ensuring the economic well-being of a region and the role that MPOs play in identifying efficient improvements that serve the region's mobility needs. The changes under consideration in the rulemaking are intended to enable MPOs to speak with a stronger, more unified voice, to increase efficiencies and reduce project delivery times, and to improve the extent to which transportation investments reflect the needs and priorities of a metropolitan region.
