Hot Spots

The Capital Area MPO, in cooperation with staff from member agencies, has developed the region’s Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP), which serves as the unconstrained element of the region’s 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). Across the region, several areas were identified as needing more detailed study to identify feasible and appropriate transportation solutions, known as "hot spot" studies.  Several of these 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.  Information developed from these studies will be used as a basis for recommendations in the CTP element of the MTP.
