Get Involved, Share Your Vision, Stay Informed

The Waco Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) develops transportation plans and programs to address future mobility needs of the greater Waco area. We want to work with you to develop a multimodal transportation system that meets the needs of you and your family, your employer and visitors to our area attractions.

Current Opportunities for Public Comment

Residents and commuters of McLennan County are invited to review and offer input on a draft long range transportation plan, Connections 2045: The Waco Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) that outlines mobility needs for the Waco Metropolitan Area through 2045.  Developed with local input, this plan identifies goals, strategies and priority projects to address expected travel demand, and guides how federal dollars will be spent to achieve them. The draft MTP is complete and ready for public review and comment. The draft document may be viewed under the page for plans and programs.

The MPO Policy Board will be considering adoption of the MTP at their meeting scheduled for 10:00 AM on Friday, January 17, 2020.  The meeting will be held at the South Waco Community Center at 2815 Speight Ave in Waco.  The MPO will conduct a formal public hearing immediately prior to action for the MTP to allow persons to address the Board concerning the draft plan.

Additionally, a study is underway to examine the potential for high-speed transportation options to connect Fort Worth, Waco, Killeen / Temple, Austin, San Antonio, and Laredo.  The study will evaluate various technology options, modes of travel, and potential corridors and station locations.
