Public comment sought for Lima-Allen County transportation plan

Lima, OH--Lima Allen County Regional Planning (LACRPC) is a US EPA 1997 Ozone Standard “Orphan” Area. Therefore, LACRPC’s current 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan must have a new conformity determination.

Even though LACRPC’s current 2040 Plan is a conforming plan, with an update cycle every five years, a new conformity determination must occur every four years.

The 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan includes a list of 137 projects, resulting in over $238.5 million in infrastructure investment. Projects include roadway resurfacing, bridge replacement, intersection enhancements, technology upgrades, bicycle, and pedestrian improvements, and others.
