Help define the future of transportation in the Ozarks and learn more about our next long range transportation plan, Destination 2045.

Visit the Destination 2045 webpage to learn about public input opportunities and to check out the plan as it develops.

Every five years the Ozarks Transportation Organization undertakes an update of the region’s Long Range Transportation Plan, looking to assess regional transportation needs for, at least, the next twenty years. The OTO Long Range Transportation Plan serves as the metropolitan transportation plan as described in Federal law. Extensive public input is incorporated into the process, while background data and trends help form the basis for plan recommendations. The current plan, Transportation Plan 2040, projects population and employment, as well as travel demands, to the year 2040.

Transportation Plan 2040

Transportation Plan 2040 is the 5-year update to the Ozark Transportation Organization’s Long Range Transportation Plan. This plan looks to 2040 to determine transportation needs and priorities throughout the region. Solidified with public input, the OTO looks forward to implementing this plan during the five years until the next update.

The Plan was originally approved at the August 18, 2016 Board of Directors Meeting.

In order to demonstrate the principles stated in the Plan, Ozarks Transportation Organization created visualizations showing the impact improvements can have to the transportation system and surrounding land uses. Originally created for Journey 2035, these visualizations continue to be great examples.
