The 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan

As the metropolitan planning organization for Mahoning and Trumbull Counties, Eastgate is required to conduct a continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive transportation planning process, with a 20-year horizon, that results in producing a Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) and Transportation Improvement Program for the region.

The MTP is a long range planning document that brings together local governments to identify transportation needs and coordinate transportation projects and policies over the next two decades. Eastgate coordinates the development of the MTP with communities throughout the planning area, and with other local, state and federal agencies. The MTP keeps Mahoning and Trumbull Counties eligible to receive federal transportation funding to improve, maintain, and operate highways, public transit, bikeways, sidewalks, and related facilities. Transportation projects must be included in the MTP to be eligible to receive federal funding within the Eastgate planning area.
