Regional Long-Range Transportation Plan Survey

Imagine the year 2045 - what will our region area look like? How will we get around? What transportation choices will be available for the next generation?

The Central Midlands Council of Governments (CMCOG) and the Columbia Area Transportation Study (COATS) Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) are updating their Long-Range Transportation Plan. This plan will address future road, transit, passenger rail, freight, bicycle and pedestrian needs for the region. It’s a document that reflects the vision and goals of the region. The plan also includes a financially-constrained list of transportation projects; including major capacity improvements (new roadway lanes or transit links), as well as pedestrian and bicycle facilities, intersection design and traffic signal upgrades, rail and freight projects, and other critical investments.

Because these are your needs, and because this plan will directly impact you and shape your quality of life, we want to hear your perspective on vital transportation challenges in the region. In this way, we can mutually shape a vision for the Central Midlands area. This brief survey should only take about 5 minutes to complete and will be used to help guide the region’s future. Thank you for your participation.
