Planning is NOW underway for MULTIPLAN 2045

MULTIPLAN is Mississippi’s Unified Long-Range Transportation Infrastructure Plan for 2045. The Mississippi Department of
Transportation (MDOT) and three of the state’s metropolitan
planning organizations (MPOs) work together to craft a comprehensive plan that is seamless in nature. It identifies long-range transportation goals and sets the stage for transportation investment over the next 25 years.

Help Mississippi Plan For Its Future!

Each MPO is a federally mandated body responsible for transportation planning in an Urbanized Area (population of at least 50,000). MPOs coordinate the transportation planning process and programs for counties and jurisdictions within the urbanized areas and work with MDOT in developing a truly comprehensive long-range transportation plan.

MPOs are directed by boards with diverse membership, including representatives from local government and transportation authorities.
