Transportation

The transportation staff at the CMPDD works with communities and agencies to oversee and assist with transportation planning efforts throughout the region.  The CMPDD is also designated as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Metro-Jackson Area.  As the MPO, the CMPDD is responsible for coordinating the federally mandated Transportation Planning Process, which coordinates federal highway and transit investments for Hinds, Madison, and Rankin Counties.  The MPO process is guided by the Intermodal Technical Committee and formally adopted by the MPO Board.

The Intermodal Technical Committee is comprised of public works officials, engineers, and planners who study transportation issues and makes recommendations to the MPO Board.  The MPO Board is comprised of local elected officials and other members of the business and minority community in the metropolitan area.  They make decisions based on the Long-Range Transportation Plan and determine the allocation and distribution of federal transportation improvement funds.

This dual process ensures that all technical aspects, as well as political considerations are carefully reviewed to ensure that the local citizens’ best interests are represented.

Transportation staff for the MPO assists in the development of The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), which is a forecasted 25-year plan of projected transportation needs, as well as the Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP), which addresses transportation project for the next four years.
