2035 Long Range Transportation Plan
TRANSPORTATION 2035 was officially adopted by the Lake~Sumter MPO Governing Board on December 8, 2010. It is significantly different from our previous plan that looked out to 2025 and forecast future roadway capacity needs solely on the results of the adopted regional travel demand model. This plan was built around the region's vision for a true multimodal transportation network, incorporating goals, objectives, and strategies that reflect the MPOs adopted Constrained Corridors Policy and corridors designated as multimodal while addressing future transportation needs.

45-Day LRTP Public Review Period
Unified Planning Work Program
The UPWP documents the transportation planning activities and associated budget for the Lake~Sumter MPO planning area. Though the document covers a two (2) year period, the UPWP is reviewed annually to refine previously identified tasks and better reflect changes in the economic climate. Prior to Board adoption, the public will be provided with the opportunity to review and comment on the draft UPWP during a twenty-one (21) day public review period. A draft is also presented to the LSMPO advisory committees for input. In addition to the public comment periods provided during each committee meeting, opportunities for public comment are also a standard part of each Board meeting prior to Board action. During this review process and following Board adoption, the UPWP is electronically published on www.LakeSumterMPO.com and is available in print, by request. Citizens unable to attend the committee or Board meetings may submit written public comments to LSMPO during the official public comment period: 1) via postal service, 2) via the Voice your Ideas form on the website www.LakeSumterMPO.com/voice.aspx or, 3) by emailing: MWoods@LakeSumterMPO.com. When significant public comments are received on a draft UPWP as a result of public involvement, a summary, analysis, and report on the disposition of comments shall be made part of the final UPWP. If the final UPWP differs significantly from the one made available for public comment or raises new material issues, an additional opportunity for public comment will be made available.

Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)
All Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) are required, by Federal and Florida law, to develop a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), which is defined as “a staged, multiyear, intermodal program of transportation projects which is consistent with the metropolitan Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP).” The TIP is developed in cooperation with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and local public transit operators.
The TIP must be updated annually, approved by the MPO Board and transmitted by July 15 of each year. The schedule for the development of the TIP must be compatible with the schedule for the development of FDOT’s Work Program and the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), since the TIP is incorporated into the STIP. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) approval of the STIP allows federal funding for metropolitan areas.
There must be a reasonable opportunity for public comment before the TIP is approved by the MPO. The draft, or proposed, TIP must be made available for public review and comment.
The TIP is financially constrained by year and includes a financial plan that shows which projects can be implemented using existing revenue sources and which projects are to be implemented using proposed revenue sources. Projects in the TIP must be consistent with the LRTP. The financial plan for the TIP is developed by the MPO, in cooperation with FDOT and local public transit operators. FDOT and the local public transit operators must provide the MPO with estimates of available state and federal funds. The TIP must include only projects for which construction and operating funds can reasonably be expected to be available. Any new funding sources must be identified.
The means by which projects are selected for the TIP depends on whether the metropolitan area has a population of 200,000 or greater, i.e., whether the area is a Transportation Management Area (TMA). The Lake~Sumter MPO is not a TMA, as its population did not exceed 200,000 until after the 2000 Census was performed. In an area not designated as a TMA, projects using Title 23 funds are selected by FDOT, or the local public transit operator, in cooperation with the MPO. Federal lands programs projects will be selected by the appropriate federal agencies in cooperation with FDOT and the MPO and must be included in the TIP.
Public Participation Plan
Our 2020 Public Participation Plan will guide public involvement for the next five years. This plan includes objectives, strategies, and measurement tools for the Lake~Sumter MPO public involvement program. This program provides a proactive approach to information and input in the planning process. Stay Connected, Stay informed.

List of Priority Projects (LOPP)
The List of Priority Projects (LOPP) is a document that all Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) are required to develop annually. The LOPP represents the unfunded transportation improvements that were not programmed for the following five year period, in order of priority. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) uses each MPO’s LOPP to aid in their decisions as to which projects should be added to their Work Program each year. The Lake~Sumter MPO approves its LOPP annually.
Each Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is required to develop a List of Priority Projects (LOPP), in coordination with the FDOT District Planning staff, and to submit the list to the District by September 1 of each year. The LOPP represents those projects that have not yet been programmed, but are considered high priorities by the MPO.
The MPO’s LOPP must be formally reviewed by the technical and citizens’ advisory committees and approved by the MPO before being transmitted to the District. In addition, all major capacity projects on the priority list, with the exception of Florida Intrastate Highway System (FIHS) and bridge replacement projects, should be screened under the Efficient Transportation Decision Making (ETDM) process (programming screen), prior to being transmitted.
Projects from the LOPP are included in the FDOT Work Program to the maximum extent feasible. Any significant disputes identified during the ETDM programming screen will be resolved prior to adding the priority project to the Work Program. The District will coordinate with the MPO to resolve any significant issues pertaining to projects on the MPO priority list pursuant to the ETDM dispute resolution process.
The District’s review of the MPO’s List of Priority Projects should ascertain that, at a minimum, it considers the following: the MPO’s approved Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), the Strategic Intermodal System (SIS) Plan, the priorities developed pursuant to the Transportation Regional Incentive Program (TRIP), and the MPO’s public involvement procedures.

Transit Development Plan (TDP)
The Transit Development Plan (TDP) is the strategic guide for public transportation in Lake County over the next five years. The TDP includes an evaluation of existing services, a review of demographic and travel behavior characteristics of the service area, a summary of local transit policies, the development of proposed transit enhancements, and the preparation of a five-year financial plan.
Florida Statutes mandate the preparation of a Transit Development Plan for all transit systems that receive Block Grants from the State of Florida.
- The TDP shall identify and list community goals and policies with respect to transportation and land use, in general, and specifically to transit service.
- The TDP shall identify and quantify the community’s need for transit service using demographic, socio-economic, land use, transportation, and transit data, as appropriate. There shall be an opportunity for the public to express the need for transit service improvements, such as, but not limited to, the Citizens Advisory Committee and workshops.
- The TDP shall include an analysis of the services currently provided in the community by public and private transit service providers, in terms of quality and quantity of service. The TDP shall present an analysis of any variation between the need identified and the service provided, and present alternative methods of addressing any deficiencies (and the costs and benefits of each). The process for selecting an alternative for implementation shall include an opportunity for public participation.
- The TDP shall present a five-year program for implementing the alternative selected. The five-year program shall include: maps indicating areas served and the type and level of service to be provided; a monitoring program to track performance measures; a five year financial plan listing operating and capital expenses and anticipated revenues by source; and a list of projects or services for which funding has not been identified. The last three years of the program may be presented with less detail than the first two years.
- The TDP shall not be in conflict with the approved local government comprehensive plan and the comprehensive Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP).
- The TDP is to be reviewed, revised as necessary, and adopted annually and submitted to the Department by July 1 of each year. The annual review and revision may be limited to refinements and extensions of the five-year program. Major updates, to be completed every third year, shall include all elements of a TDP as defined in this rule.
Regional Freight Plan
As Central Florida’s population grows and the demand for goods and services increases, efficient, cost-effective freight movement becomes more critical. Everything we buy – clothing, groceries, furniture, construction supplies and more – arrives as freight. Well thought-out freight planning improves safety, economic competitiveness, air quality, and traffic flow, resulting in a thriving economy. The Central Florida Regional Freight Mobility Study sets the foundation for fully integrating freight into the long range planning process. View Executive Summary Here
To get a better grasp of freight needs for the year 2040, we first had to understand the current situation. Planning began with an assessment of the types of goods coming to and through the region, where they come from, and how freight moves. This identified freight deficiencies and opportunities in the transportation system.
Results showed that of the more than 200 million tons of freight flowing throughout our region each year, about 95% of our goods move by truck, with the remaining 5% moving by rail, sea, and air. The freight needs assessment revealed three areas where opportunities for improvement exist: 1) capacity and congestion; 2) community impacts, including air quality and safety; and 3) institutional and regulatory bottlenecks.
Addressing current and future freight needs requires complex solutions in these areas:
- Infrastructure:Investments in the physical transportation system, such as building new facilities (roads, rails, ports), reconstructing existing ones, or maintaining the current system get the most out of it.
- Operational:Solutions that focus on improving efficiency and flow of the existing system, including synchronizing traffic signals, improving signage, or providing real-time traffic data to dispatchers and drivers.
- Institutional:Solutions focusing on policies, regulations, and governance issues at the regional, state, and federal levels.
Preparing for freight growth will put Central Florida in a position to prosper economically. By 2040, freight demand is expected to grow between 35% and 61%. This growth will generate jobs and income. For every 1 million tons of freight moved in Central Florida, 155 direct transportation jobs and $7 million in direct income are created.
