ATRC Updates

2018-2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan Update

The Androscoggin Transportation Resource Center (ATRC) is beginning the process of updating its Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).  ATRC is responsible for transportation planning in Auburn, Lewiston, Lisbon and Sabattus.  ATRC is also responsible for advising and prioritizing surface transportation needs for these communities for the Maine Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration.  The Metropolitan Transportation Plan will be used to guide the development of future Transportation Improvement Programs, transportation studies and projects over the next 20 years.  A copy of the current MTP is available on the ATRC website at http://avcog.org/DocumentCenter/View/1700.

The planning process for the update of this plan provides opportunities for public input.  We will be sending out notices requesting review and comments to our “Interested and Affected Parties List” in May 2019.  ATRC will be using its website, www.atrcmpo.org, to provide information on the MTP update.

The draft transportation plan will be completed by early June and a 30-day public comment period will begin.  A public meeting to discuss the draft plan will be held in late June or early July 2019.  The final plan will be completed by the end of July 2019.  The ATRC will accept and respond to all comments received during this process.

Anyone with questions or comments can contact Joan Walton at jwalton@avcog.org, or 783-9186, or 125 Manley Road, Auburn, ME 04210.
