Much like people, every road, every highway, has its own personality...its own character

Long Range Transportation Plans

The Federal Highway Administration, Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division (EFLHD) is leading a process to develop Forest Highway Long Range Transportation Plans (LRTPs) for Forest Highway programs in Forest Service Regions 8 and 9. The LRTPs establish the long range vision, mission, and goals that are the basis for long range transportation project selection and funding for the Forest Highway system in each state. The plans are the product of the Tri-Agency partnerships, which represents the State Departments of Transportation, US Department of Agriculture, Forest Service (USFS), and EFLHD and our FHWA Division Office partners. The LRTPs will incorporate selection criterion that will allow projects to be evaluated objectively and on an individual basis relative to the primary goals of the Tri-Agency. The process will ensure that investments in safety management, preservation, construction, planning, and multi-modal programs provide the greatest benefit toward the Tri-Agency vision, mission, and goals.
