The Kingsport Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization (MTPO) is responsible for developing an area Long-Range Transportation Plan that has a minimum 20-year horizon and includes a multi-modal element. The MTPO has developed a draft “Year 2040” Plan that includes recommendations for various transportation projects that focus on safety, congestion mitigation, access and travel time, economic development, and mobility options. The Plan includes a significant amount of background data, forecasts of area development and traffic flow patterns, and anticipated funding that will provide the resources for implementing priority projects. Partners in developing this plan include the Cities of Kingsport, Mt. Carmel, Church Hill, Weber City, Gate City, Sullivan County, Hawkins County, Scott County, the Tennessee and Virginia Departments of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration, and the Federal Transit Administration. The Plan document is now available for public review.
