PRESS RELEASE – HAMPO Announces Priority Rankings

May 4, 2020 –

On April 9, 2020 the HAMPO Policy Committee released the public and stakeholder ranking scores used as priority weighting factors for the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). These factors were gathered through public and stakeholder outreach, with rankings being chosen by five distinct methods of collection: Public Survey, Public Workshops, HAMPO Technical Subcommittee Poll, HAMPO Citizens Advisory Committee Poll, and Liberty Countywide Planning Retreat Poll. The general public and stakeholders ranked the HAMPO 2045 goals to guide how transportation investments will be made in the HAMPO region.

The highest priority goal, according to the aggregate rankings, was ‘Improve Safety and Security,’ followed by ‘Promote Economic Development and Support Freight.’

HAMPO 2020-2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) Update

Project Introduction
The Hinesville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (HAMPO) is in the process of updating its Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) that covers all of Liberty County and the urbanized portions of Long County, Including Fort Stewart, and the municipalities of Allenhurst, Flemington, Gum Branch, Hinesville, Midway, Riceboro, and Walthourville.   In order to remain compliant with both federal and state requirements, the MTP is updated every five years. The MTP update will cover a 25-year period from 2020 to 2045. This update will provide a “roadmap” for HAMPO’s transportation investments by prioritizing needs across the planning boundary.   HAMPO including the local member jurisdictions are partnering with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT in this endeavor.

The plan will include an assessment of the current conditions and future needs of the transportation infrastructure based on population, household, school enrollment, and employment projections for the region. Safety concerns as well as traffic congestion will be studied to understand where improvements are needed. Based on this analysis, a list of projects will be developed with short, mid, and long-term horizon years to best address the transportation needs over the next 25 years. Finally, the 2020 MTP will recommend a financially-constrained list of transportation projects for implementation, based on available funding, to address the area’s transportation needs over the 25 year planning horizon through year 2045.

Project Schedule

The 2020 MTP update process will cover an 18-month period shown on the attached schedule.

Outreach Opportunities

Community Events – The project team will set up a booth at up to three (3) community events. The booth will provide an opportunity for the public to learn more about the project and ask questions of the technical team. The meeting locations and times will be posted here once confirmed.
