Related Projects and Plans
The 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan will reference several other planning efforts in the West Piedmont region. Those documents and efforts include some of the following, which includes brief descriptions and links to additional materials.
The 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan is the current plan for the Danville MPO. This version identified transportation need for the urbanized area, with a 2040 planning horizon. This LRTP included ten specific transportation projects in the Fiscally Constrained Plan. There were four additional projects for system-wide improvements. The Vision Plan includes 29 unconstrained projects.
The TIP is an MPO document that lists transportation projects which are reasonably anticipated to be funded for a period of at least four years, and which is consistent with the LRTP. The typical sources of projects within this document include the current Long-Range Transportation Plan and the Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP). The TIP represents the medium by which a planning project transitions to a programmed (funded) project.
As required by law, the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) allocates public funds to transportation projects over six-fiscal years, comprising the Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP). Projects include improvements to the interstate, primary, secondary and urban highway systems, public transit, ports and airports and other programs. The CTB updates the SYIP each fiscal year. As revenue estimates are updated, new priorities are identified and existing projects advance. The fiscal year starts July 1 and ends June 30.
The purpose of this document is to promote bicycling in the West Piedmont region. Bicycling in the region is intended to be advanced primarily by localities adopting recommendations put forth in this plan. These routes were developed for recommendation based on a variety of data sources as well as to establish more effective bicycle connectivity throughout the region.
