The Metropolitan Transportation Plan (Metro Plan) serves as the comprehensive transportation-planning document for the Strafford Metropolitan Planning Organization (SMPO) region. The region, located in southeastern New Hampshire, covers eighteen communities within Rockingham, Strafford, and Carroll Counties. Transportation planning in metropolitan areas is intended to be a collaborative process, led by the SMPO, to include stakeholders in the regional transportation system. Involvement from the public and businesses, community groups, and environmental organizations is a key component to the planning process. The Metro Plan comprises at least twenty years and includes projects in the 4-year Transportation Improvement Program, the Statewide Ten Year Plan, and the long range portion of the Metro Plan called the out-years. The plan is regularly updated so that the list of projects is consistent across all three plans.
The 2021 Metro Plan update includes discussion about regional planning issues and trends. Metrics related to these trends is located in the Regional Data Snapshot which can be found here.
