Welcome to the LRTP 2040 Website!


Sustainable Choices 2040 is the long range transportation plan that guides the evolution of the transportation system in the Champaign-Urbana urbanized area over the next 25 years. The plan strives to use the existing infrastructure to optimize mobility while promoting a multi-modal transportation network that encourages environmental sensitivity, accessibility, and economic development to enhance quality of life for all users.

Your input will continue to support us as we update the Sustainable Choices 2040.


Previous LRTP

The Champaign-Urbana Urbanized Area Transportation Study (CUUATS) began the update of the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) in January 2009. The LRTP is a document that details how the local area transportation system should evolve over the next 25 years. This document must be updated every five years as a requirement mandated by the Federal Highway Administration in order for communities in the urbanized area to receive federal and state funding for transportation projects.

I think that people who use the bike lanes should obey traffic law. Why do we have bike lanes if people are not going to be safe using them? Bikers don't stop at stop signs or lights and turn in front of cars all of the time. I respect the bike lanes and always watch for bikes, but get annoyed when they don't obey the law.

I enjoy the MTD. It covers a ton of routes that I need to use often. I do wish that they would run earlier in the day though (pre-7am).

Yes, wholeheartedly agree, more cyclists need to obey traffic laws.
But so do car drivers - go the speed limits or less; quit making right turns on red without stopping for peds; quit having vehicles (univ or otherwise) driving on the Quad.
We also need pedestrians to quit walking in the roads when citizens and businesses refuse to shovel snow from their sidewalks.
All sorts, cars`bikes`peds, still cross in front of trains and get killed (over 500 per yr in usa).

so, what is the point of only pointing at cyclists??

The point is, EVERYONE, as well as every mode, has public ''misbehaviour'' problems!!!!

Get all citizens to follow the existing laws, the regulations and rules of govt agencies, and my god people need to get some common sense, as well as understand some basic laws of physics in regard to vehicle sizes and speeds.

And EVERYONE, needs to quit texting, and take their damn headphones out of their ears, when walking, biking, AND driving!

So, how do we get people in society to start behaving??? remove snow from sidewalks? drive & bike safely? for pedestrians to pay better attention to where they walk?

Once you can answer that for us in transport planning, then you can complain about only bikes not following the traffic laws.

The one thing that would be really nice is to have the weekend route that the Orange used to have down Church Street/up University Avenue. When we first moved to our home on Fair Street my children and I used it often. It was especially nice in the summer so we could do running around town errands which left my husband free to do outdoor projects without having to stop and play weekend chauffeur so often.
