Local Planning Activities

2020 Update of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan

Every five years, we are required to update our transportation plan, which has a minimum 20-year planning horizon.

Our current plan, Coulee Vision 2040, was approved on September 16, 2015 and will be replaced by Beyond Coulee Vision 2040 when it's approved on September 16, 2020.

While our website is being redesigned, draft chapters and supplemental materials will be made available here.

If you need special accommodation to view these materials, please contact Jackie Eastwood at 608.785.6141.


Beyond Coulee Vision 2040 (BCV2040)

Please note that internal document links will not work if they reference a different chapter or appendix. All links will work when the entire final document is posted. Appendix E and Appendix F will be available after the final plan is approved.

NOTE: Chapters that are reposted have not had content updated. They have been reposted to reflect font updates in some headings and page and draft date changes as updates occurred in other chapters.
