[ARCHIVED] Urban Area MPO seeking citizen input for new transportation plan

The Bristol Tennessee/Virginia Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is asking for citizen input to help set future transportation needs of the community and establish priorities for funding those improvements. “The survey should take no more than three minutes to complete,” said Rex Montgomery, Transportation Planning Manager. “This input is vital in recognizing what is important to our community in the area of transportation.” To participate in the survey go to www.bristoltn.org click on “Surveys” or go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BRISTOLMPO.

“A major role of our MPO’s work is to produce the regional long-range transportation plan which summarizes the multimodal transportation plan that includes highways, transit, bicycle and pedestrian. This plan will reflect needs for the next 25 years,” continued Montgomery. The MPO is working on an update that will extend the current plan through 2040.

The MPO is a federally mandated agency responsible for the transportation processes that allows the MPO region to receive federal and state transportation funding. The Bristol Tennessee/Virginia Urban Area MPO is comprised of representatives from local governments and includes the City of Bristol, Tennessee, City of Bristol, Virginia, the Town of Abingdon, Virginia, and Sullivan Country, Tennessee and Washington County, Virginia.

For more information on the MPO’s work or the survey, please contact Rex Montgomery at 423-989-5591 or email rmontgomery@bristoltn.org.
