June 15, 2022 – In early 2022, El Paso County began the process of updating the Major Transportation Corridors Plan (MTCP). The current 2040 MTCP, adopted in 2016, is the long-range plan focusing on the transportation system, transportation investments, and development coordination in unincorporated El Paso County. To address the dynamic nature of growth and change in the County, the MTCP is regularly updated.
The 2045 MTCP will incorporate updated information such as 2020 Census data, updated planning from incorporated areas within the County, and project phasing recommendations. The plan will also address developments in transportation funding, technology, environmental considerations, and vulnerable populations.
El Paso County wants to make sure the recommendations and priorities developed for the 2045 MTCP reflect the values and needs of those who live, work, visit, and recreate in the County. Phase one of public engagement launches on June 15, 2022, and spans four weeks. Community members can learn more and provide input at 2045MTCP.com. Your feedback will help us understand the community’s issues, opportunities, and preferences related to transportation.
It is anticipated that the Draft 2045 MTCP will be available for public review in mid-2023 and adopted in late 2023. To stay informed about the status of the El Paso County MTCP, be sure to sign up for the 2045 MTCP project email updates and visit our webpage at 2045MTCP.com.
