The Longview Metropolitan Planning Organization invites the public to provide input about the future of transportation in the greater Longview area as part of Mobility 2045, the region’s long range transportation plan. In conjunction with the public input effort, Longview Transit is also seeking input about possible route changes for bus services.  

Residents are encouraged to attend an Open House from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, April 23, at the Maude Cobb Convention and Activity Center, 100 Grand Blvd. For those unable to attend the Open House, an online survey will also available at LongviewTexas.gov/Mobility2045.

Open House attendees will learn about Mobility 2045 project goals, process and timeline, and view current and future congested roadways, areas with the highest expected growth, and intersections with the most crashes.  The Open House and online survey are opportunities to share priorities on how to improve highways, Longview Transit service routes, freight movement, bicycle & pedestrian travel, and much more.

Mobility 2045 guides the implementation of multi-modal transportation improvements, policies, and programs needed to meet the needs of Longview Area travelers through the year 2045.  Mobility 2045 consists of two transportation planning documents:

  • Metropolitan Transportation Plan 2045 - A federally required, fiscally constrained, performance-based plan that identifies transportation needs for the next 25 years.
  • Regional Thoroughfare Plan 2045 - A long range plan that identifies the location and type of roadway facilities that are needed to meet the projected long-term growth in the region.

In the summer of 2019, Longview Transit’s transfer center will move from the current location at Magrill Plaza to a new facility at the Longview Multimodal Transportation Center on Pacific Avenue. As a result of this relocation, all existing Longview Transit routes will be modified to some degree. So, Longview Transit is inviting the public to suggest possible service locations to be considered as a part of the route changes.
