The United States government requires any urban area (50,000 or more people) to have an MPO – we exist because the Lexington area population is over 380,000. Every day transportation crosses county lines, so we work for Fayette and Jessamine Counties.
Your Lexington Area MPO includes full-time staff, special committees, and partner organizations. Together, we focus on the three Ps: plans, projects, and policy. We set goals, make useful improvements, and work for good mobility choices for everyone. As a team, we gather data and listen to the community to:
1. better understand and respond to present challenges,
2. estimate future opportunities, and
3. guide spending.
