Input Needed on Mobility Plan 2045 Project List

The TPO needs your input on the proposed list of projects for Mobility Plan 2045! This long-range transportation plan is updated every four years and guides transportation investments in the region. It allows federal money to be received for transportation projects and ensures that we’re making the best long-term decisions for our residents, employers, and visitors.

Local jurisdictions recently submitted applications for potential projects to be included in the plan, and staff is now asking to hear your thoughts on them. Projects will be selected by considering both technical analysis and public input.  Once the final list is determined in the spring of 2021, these projects will start to move through the development process. They sometimes take as long as 20 years to complete, so hearing input from community members early in the process is vital to their success.

A short survey and interactive map showing all candidate projects is now available. Please answer the initial questions to help us ensure everyone is involved in shaping the future of the Knoxville region. Anyone who answers the questions and provides an email address or telephone number will be eligible to win one of four $50 grocery store gift cards. After completing the survey, you will be directed to our online mapping application where you can provide your input on specific projects. You can also view the list of projects in this spreadsheet, which provides additional project details and allows you to filter by county, jurisdiction, and project type.

The survey and map will be open for comments through October 11. For more information on Mobility Plan 2045, please visit https://knoxmobility.org. Additionally, if you need assistance in using the application or if there is a project you feel is needed but is not shown on the map, please email the project team at mobility@knoxplanning.org.
