The BGMPO is responsible for maintaining a Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) for the planning area shown above. The MTP outlines the BGMPO’s transportation-related goals and objectives and addresses transportation-related issues and impacts over a minimum 20-year horizon. The MTP is developed through a cooperative process led by the BGMPO, and including the FHWA, NCDOT, transit operators, stakeholders, and the public, to create a vision for the future of the community. The process, which is prescribed by federal regulations, is designed to assist the BGMPO in prioritizing short- and long-term investments in the area’s transportation system over the next 25 years. The MTP must be updated every five years, which ensures that it is based on the most recent data available for the region, identifies current trends in travel demand, and reflects the latest transportation policies and programs.
Getting There 2045 is the MTP being developed to update the 2015 plan. It will be a comprehensive plan that defines the transportation network that will serve the existing and projected transportation volumes in and around the Burlington-Graham MPO. Getting There 2045 will be based on the most accurate and up-to-date information available on population and economic growth and land development patterns within the BGMPO area.

Strategic Transportation Investments Prioritization Process
Every two years, the Burlington - Graham Metropolitan Planning Organization (BGMPO), along with the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), identifies and prioritizes transportation projects for inclusion in the NCDOT Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). This process, known as “Prioritization 6.0” for the current cycle, is directly tied to the Strategic Transportation Investments law that passed the NC General Assembly in 2013. General information about this overall process can be found on NCDOT’s website here. The BGMPO issued a P6.0 Call for Projects for consideration in the 2022 - 2031 STIP, August 2019. The deadline for BGMPO member agency P6.0 project submissions is Friday, December 20, 2019, 5:00 p.m.
