Metropolitan Transportation Plan

One of Winston-Salem Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization's (WSUAMPO's) most important responsibilities is developing and implementing a Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) for the planning area. The MTP outlines the WUSAMPO's transportation-related goals and objectives and addresses transportation-related issues and impacts over a 25-year horizon.  

This fiscally-constrained, multi-modal transportation plan is updated every five years to adapt to population growth and land use patterns shifts, policy changes, new federal and state legislation and guidance, and other changes affecting the region. The 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan was adopted in 2015.

Making Connections 2045CTP_MTP_Update

Making Connections 2045 is based on the most up-to-date information available on population and economic growth and addresses changes in land use and transportation trends within the Winston-Salem urbanized areas since 2015.  On November 19, 2020 the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) adopted the 2045 MTP Update for the Winston-Salem Urban Area.
