As part of the Longview Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (MPO) Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) Update, the Thoroughfare Plan will also be updated to provide policy guidance for the agencies within the MPO. The Thoroughfare Plan is a long-range plan that identifies the location and type of roadway facilities that are needed to meet the projected long-term growth in the region. The Plan serves as a tool for jurisdictions within the MPO to preserve future corridors for transportation system development.
The purpose of updating the Thoroughfare Plan is to provide consistency of roadway standards among the member cities, counties and agencies. The Thoroughfare Plan also includes information related to roadway classification, right-of-way requirements, and number of through travel lanes for each thoroughfare.
