MARC is working with local governments and other transportation stakeholders to develop RTP 2050, a plan that will serve as a blueprint for managing the Kansas City region’s transportation system for the next 30 years, and we want to know what you think. The RTP 2050 plan includes a long-term vision for the region’s transportation system, along with goals that we want to achieve by 2050 and strategies for how we plan to do it.
The final plan will also include a list of transportation projects — major regional investments for the next 30 years that will help us accomplish our goals. This list has to be financially constrained, meaning that the projects fit within the budget of transportation funding that we can reasonably expect to receive over the next 30 years.
MARC issued a call for projects in February, and we received more than 400 applications representing projects in all parts of the region, with total costs that exceed our expected funding. We will need to make some hard decisions about what to include in the plan, and that’s where you come in.
Please review the list using the link below and share your comments at the bottom of each project. Your feedback will help our planning committees as they review and prioritize projects. Comments will be accepted through the end of the summer.
