Welcome to the Corridor MPO

The Corridor Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is an organization made up of elected officials and appointed representatives of Cedar Rapids, Linn County, Marion, Hiawatha, Robins, Ely, Fairfax, and Palo. The MPO is tasked with reviewing and approving transportation investments in the Cedar Rapids metropolitan area.

Since its inception, the major activity of the Corridor MPO has been the preparation of area wide plans to help guide orderly growth and development within the region.

The 2045 LRTP (Long Range Transportation Plan) is the federally required long-range strategy and capital improvement program developed to guide the effective investment of public funds in multimodal transportation facilities for the metropolitan planning organization area. The LRTP outlines the Vision and Fiscally Constrained Plans from which the region's Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), a short-range capital improvement program for implementing road, trail, transit, and Safe Routes to School projects, is drawn. The Plan was adopted by the Policy Board on July 16, 2020.

Previously, agendas for the Corridor MPO's different bodies and committees were found in the following section of this webpage.  These materials have moved to the following pages: Transportation Technical Advisory Committee, Executive Committee, Policy Board, Transportation Advisory Group, and the Bike/Pedestrian Roundtable.
