CDTC is federally mandated to prepare and maintain a regional transportation plan (RTP) in order to allocate federal transportation funds to projects and programs. The current plan, known as New Visions 2040, is being updated to include development scenarios, projections, strategies and actions through 2050. New Visions 2050 will define a shared vision of the region's future and will describe the transportation investments needed to support that vision. 

The update process involves three phases. (1) the development of white papers on a range of transportation related topics, providing the foundation for the plan; (2) the development of a preliminary draft plan followed by two months of public engagement; and (3) the development of a final draft plan with a second two-month public engagement process.
