Serving as a regional partnership among the United States Department of Transportation, Texas Department of Transportation, transit agencies, elected leaders, local planning and development staff and the community across the three-county planning area, the MPO leads in the development of the region's short and long-range transportation planning efforts.  The MPO also participates in the continuing discussion about issues such as land use, economic development, resource preservation, safety and security and health as they relate to transportation planning.  The Permian Basin Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is the federally-designated transportation planning agency for the approximately 600 square miles and more than 275,000 people in the Metropolitan Area.

2045 MTP Call for Projects

The Permian Basin Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is developing a new set of transportation planning documents to assist with decisions regarding transportation investments to the year 2045. The 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) will include multimodal, regionally significant projects that demonstrate the ability to meet prescribed federal, state, local, and MPO requirements. The 2045 MTP is the MPO’s long-range planning document that establishes a list of multi modal projects to be completed once funding is secured. The MTP document will reflect proposed investments based on federal, state and local performance targets and regulations where applicable.

The MPO is accepting Project Submission Forms beginning September 24, 2018 and closing on October 24, 2018. The call for projects is for the years 2020-2045.

Please share your ideas for the region’s transportation needs by completing a project submission form(s) and returning it to the MPO in the stated timeline. Forms can be mailed to Permian Basin MPO at P.O. Box 60916, Midland, TX 79711 or emailed to info@permianbasinmpo.com.

Project Submission Form

 

The Permian Basin Metropolitan Planning Organization Policy Board voted to accept a three-county thoroughfare plan to guide future transportation planning.

 

At their October 22nd meeting the Permian Basin Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) Policy Board voted unanimously to concur with a three-county thoroughfare plan for Ector, Martin, and Midland County. While the MPO Policy Board is made up of representatives of public agencies that administer or operate major modes of transportation in a designated metropolitan boundary they felt a need to extend beyond that boundary to the extent of the three counties due to the tremendous growth and activity in the Permian Basin. It is necessary at this time to take steps to preserve right-of-way and promote continuity with road standards and alignments. The plan was a coordinated and cooperative six-month effort between representatives from the three counties, two cities and the Permian Basin MPO.
