Metropolitan Transportation Plan

The Bowling Green-Warren County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is updating the long-range transportation plan, the 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). The purpose of this plan is to identify the existing and proposed transportation facilities and services that are necessary to meet the transportation needs of Bowling Green and Warren County by the year 2045. The recommendations for transportation projects have been shaped by key community issues, transportation goals and initiatives, future land use developments, population trends, and employment patterns.The MTP outlines a multi-modal approach to transportation investment, aiming to improve safety and mobility for all users – motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and freight providers. The update process is driven by stakeholder and public input, to then evaluate and define transportation projects and priorities for the future of our community.


The MPO recently completed the Draft 2045 MTP. The Draft document and appendices are posted below. A 30-day public review and comment period is open July 29 through August 28, 2020. Comments can be emailed to or mailed to the mailing address listed at the bottom of this site. Additionally, a virtual public meeting will be held on Monday, August 3 at 5 PM. Please see the links below for the calendar invite, Zoom link, and more information.
