Long Range Planning
On the Move: 2015-2045 Transportation Plan - Update 2020
TMACOG maintains a long-range transportation plan going out 20 years or more with updates completed every five years.
On the Move: Long-Range Transportation Planning
This plan is the prioritized list of projects, initiatives, and policies that guide transportation investments in the Toledo metropolitan area (Lucas and Wood counties in Ohio, and southern Monroe County in Michigan). It is not a wish list. It is a carefully weighed and balanced plan that is fiscally constrained based on dollars that we expect to be available.

What is in the 2045 Plan?
- Safety: Reduce traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries across all modes.
- Infrastructure condition: Maintain and improve the transportation system to a state of good repair.
- Congestion reduction: Reduce congestion on the National Highway System (NHS).
- System reliability: Improve the efficiency of the surface transportation system.
- Freight movement: Strengthen freight access to national and international trade markets to support economic development.
- Environmental sustainability: Protect and enhance the community and natural environments.
- Project delivery: Expedite project delivery to maximize effective use of public funds.
- Personal mobility: Improve the quality, accessibility, and efficiency of the multimodal personal transportation system.
Projects: Construction and renovation of roads, bridges, and all other transportation infrastructure. Most of the projects are aimed at keeping the current system in good repair.
Initiatives: Not all transportation needs can be addressed by building a highway or other modal project. The initiatives set aside funding and commit to pursuing studies and other collaborative actions.
Policies: While no specific dollars are committed to implement policies, they have the potential to inform and guide action across the region. This plan includes 26 policies ranging from environmental protection, to a commitment to improving transportation for non-drivers.
Environmental Review of the Plan
As part of the plan, we created maps showing draft 2045 Plan projects in relationship to environmental resources. We also prepared a table listing projects that may have an impact on key environmental resources. As required for this plan, we consulted with environmental agencies regarding any concerns they may have about plan projects.

Non-Motorized Priority Projects (Pedestrian and Bikeways)
Policy Briefs & Legislative Priorities
As the infrastructure funding gap continues to grow, prudent investments are needed now to prevent further deterioration of our transportation infrastructure: streets, highways, bridges, rail and transit systems, pedestrian and bikeway systems, airports, ports, and waterways. The public sector has a responsibility to act to improve safety, support quality of life, and enhance economic competitiveness.Learn More
