Miami-Dade 2040 LRTP - Oct. 23, 2014

8-8 | MOBILITY OPTIONS 8 Southeast Florida 2040 Plan The 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) identifies the most significant transportation investments needed to meet growing and changing travel demands throughout the southeast Florida region (Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach counties). The horizon year of 2040 provides time for agencies to assemble funds and complete the technical work required to design and construct selected regional transportation improvements. Important elements of the RTP include: ESTIMATES OF GROWTH OVER THE NEXT 25 YEARS: How many more residents and jobs will come to Southeast Florida by 2040? GOALS FOR ACCOMMODATING THIS GROWTH: How the region wants to grow has a great influcence on where and how limited transportation dollars should be invested. REGIONALLY SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENTS: Prioritizing projects that best meet the plan goals. FUNDING TO IMPLEMENT THE PLAN: A financial plan that lays out funding sources and mechanisms to implement RTP strategies. A COMPLETE REGIONAL PICTURE: A Plan that matches investments to where and how the region is growing. The RTP is intended to articulate the collective best choices for the region as it plans to add approximately one million jobs and 1.5 million residents to the transportation network. Figure 8-6 | Southeast Florida 2040 Plan Public input is a critical element in the development and adoption of the 2040 RTP, given the importance and impact of transportation on residents/travelers in the region.
