Purpose of Database:
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), with the assistance of the U.S. Department
of Transportation’s (DOT) Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (Volpe Center),
has developed the State Long-Range Transportation Plan Database as a technical resource
for State DOTs and other stakeholders.
For comments or questions on the database or accompanying report, please contact
Lorrie Lau, FHWA project manager (Lorrie.Lau@dot.gov), or William Lyons, Volpe Center
project manager (William.Lyons@dot.gov).
The information in the database is based on the Volpe team’s review of 51
state long-range transportation plans from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
An accompanying report (available here) provides analysis from the
review and summarizes detailed findings. A nine-member project advisory group advised
the research team on priority topics of interest for the review of statewide long-range
transportation plans. The advisory group included representatives of the Transportation Research Board’s
Statewide Multimodal Planning Committee, other State DOTs, and representatives of
Topics in Database:
The database presents information on how individual
plans address the following ten transportation planning topics:

Note: the information provided in the database is not intended as an exhaustive
representation of how a topic was addressed in a state’s transportation planning
process. The review was completed in winter and spring 2010 and focused on the information
included in a state’s long-range transportation plan that was available at
the time the review was conducted.
