Regional Transportation Plan (RTP)

Every four years, MPOs must update their long-range transportation plan with at least a 20 year planning horizon.  This long-range plan must be financially reasonable and conform to air-quality standards. Significantly, no transportation projects in the region may be funded with federal money unless the projects are found in an approved long-range transportation plan.  Our long-range plan is called the Regional Transportation Plan, or RTP.

Draft 2040 RTP Update

WILMAPCO is currently developing a 2015 update to the 2040 RTP.  Details about the update, expected to be adopted January 2015, can be reviewed below.

2040 RTP

Our 2040 RTP was adopted in January 2011. It is best thought of an update to the 2030 RTP, adopted in March 2007. Federal approval of our 2040 RTP was received in March 2011. You can review the 2040 and 2030 RTPs in PDF format below. To download free viewing software, visit

2010 Our Town Event

The 2040 RTP was unveiled at WILMAPCO’s Our Town Event.  Our Town provided the opportunity for stakeholders and interested citizens to learn about the RTP update, and share ideas.  The event was held in conjunction with outreach for the Delaware Statewide Transportation Plan, Delaware State Strategies for Spending, the New Castle County Comprehensive Plan, and PlanMaryland.  Therefore, those attending had the opportunity to learn about and affect five major regional plans at one event.
