- Transportation Planning
MRCOG is home to the Mid-Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (MRMPO) for the Albuquerque Metropolitan Planning Area (AMPA) (PDF). Our planning activities are centered around transportation issues, and the intersection between transportation and land use, the environment and the economy.
Metropolitan Transportation Plan
The MTP is a blueprint for investing in our transportation networks over the next 20 years that has been adopted by the metropolitan area’s leaders.
Congestion Management Process
The CMP is a federally mandated process that helps identify the most congested roadways in the metropolitan area and strategies to improve mobility for the traveling public.
The traffic monitoring program oversees the collection of traffic counts along all major roadways in order to examine travel patterns and inform transportation planning activities.
Bicycles and Pedestrians
Bicycle and pedestrian planning activities include a non-motorized counts program and inter-agency efforts that emphasize designing streets for all users and creating multi-modal connections.
Safety and Crashes
Safety planning at the MPO is focused on the goal of eliminating death and injury on public roadways and include Vision Zero, prioritizing projects for safety, and crash analyses.
Intelligent Transportation Systems
Regional ITS activities involve the application of technology-based strategies to coordinate travel management and improve the efficiency of the existing transportation network.
Transportation planning activities address climate change concerns, vulnerable populations, and mitigation and adaptation measures that strengthen environmental resiliency.
Planning for Equity
The MPO strives to recognize and address equity issues in planning through evaluating the transportation system with a focus on communities that are disproportionately burdened or benefitted by investment decisions.
