Long Range Mobility Plan Amendments Spur Air Quality Conformity Determination

A set of project amendments for both the Long Range Regional Mobility Plan and FY 2014-2017 Transportation Improvement Program were adopted by the TPO Executive Board at their March 10, 2015 meeting.

An air quality conformity determination for these amendments was required due to the Knoxville Region's current air quality attainment status with Federal Clean Air Act regulations. A presentation was provided by the TPO staff that gives an overview of the transportation planning requirements associated with meeting the Federal air quality regulations and the conformity analysis that was conducted by the TPO to demonstrate compliance of its transportation plans with those requirements. View the presentation here.
