RIVER TO SEA TRANSPORTATION PLANNING ORGANIZATION (TPO)
ANNOUNCES OPEN HOUSE STYLE CONNECT 2045 NEEDS ASSESSMENT WORKSHOPS
DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Connect 2045 is the new Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) being developed to guide the transportation future of the River to Sea TPO planning area.

As we develop this plan, we are holding a series of Needs Assessment Workshops in an open house format to discuss transportation needs for our community. The input received from these workshops will help shape the 2045 LRTP and help in identifying ways to invest in the local transportation network to maintain a sustainable system that provides for a strong future.
