Connect 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)

Connect 2045 is the long-range transportation plan (LRTP) developed by the River to Sea Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) to reflect and meet the future transportation needs of our changing community. This planning effort represents a core function of the TPO and is the result of a continuous, cooperative, and comprehensive (3-C) planning process.  Developed with input from people, agencies, and organizations representing all parts of our community to reflect collective values and a broad range of needs, the plan strives to provide residents, visitors, and businesses with the best transportation solutions to efficiently and safely move people and goods.

Connect 2045:

  • Is consistent with applicable state and federal requirements
  • Is coordinated locally, and within the region and state
  • Integrates detailed and general community and stakeholder input
  • Aligns community vision with project priorities
  • Identifies a multimodal, fiscally-constrained Cost Feasible Plan to enhance the area’s transportation network over the next 25 years
  • Provides benefits to the entire population without disproportionate adverse impacts

The River to Sea TPO Governing Board adopted Connect 2045 on September 23, 2020.

COVID-19 Announcement 

The River to Sea TPO is strongly committed to serving the public in the work that we do; and in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are putting measures in place to protect the health and safety of those we work with and serve while continuing to pursue our activities under these unusual circumstances.

Under the directives issued by the state and national governments, and with consideration for the health of the TPO staff and everyone we serve, River to Sea TPO Board Chair Jason McGuirk has officially directed the TPO staff to begin implementing the following activities to limit face-to-face meetings and events as follows:

  • Cancelling all non-essential activities (helmet fittings, community presentations, etc.);
  • Initiating remote work options;
  • Limiting access to our physical offices to ensure adherence to social distancing advisories; and
  • Permitting all committee and board members not needed for a physical quorum to attend meetings remotely.

The above directives are effective immediately and will be reassessed and updated as needed.

These measures will impact our typical community outreach and engagement activities. Please know that while general access to the TPO’s physical office is closed and our community presentations are suspended, the staff of the River to Sea TPO remains available online and by email and phone during normal business hours. Staff contact information is available here: If you have a meeting scheduled with a TPO staff member, expect a phone call or email with specific details for that meeting.

The safety, health and well-being of our staff, committee and board members, stakeholders, and public citizens is our highest priority. The River to Sea TPO will continue to monitor the actions of our national, state and local partners and reassess as more information is made available. We appreciate your understanding as we navigate this unprecedented situation.

We encourage everyone to use social distancing and consider what steps you can take to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you need to access any resources related to COVID-19, please check the Centers for Disease Control website ( and the Florida Department of Health website (

As always, your input is welcomed.  Please let us know if you have any questions, comments or concerns and we will do our best to answer them.
