Hot Spots

The Capital Area MPO, in cooperation with staff from member agencies, has developed the region’s Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP).  The CTP serves as the unconstrained element of the region’s 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).  Between 2010 and 2012, the Capital Area MPO conducted a series of sub-regional workshops to identify transportation projects for inclusion in the CTP element of the MTP.  As a result of these workshops, several areas were identified as needing more detailed study to identify feasible and appropriate transportation solutions.  Several of these “hot spot” studies are conducted annually throughout the planning area to identify and develop an analysis of potential operational and safety improvements for approximately two to four locations each year.  Information developed from these studies will be used as a basis for recommendations in the CTP element of the MTP.
