2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan

The Sherman-Denison MPO is updating its long-range transportation plan this year, commonly known as the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). The MTP is updated every five years, as required by federal law, to plan for the area’s major transportation investments needed to keep up with our region’s growth and development trends. Moving Forward 2045 MTP will guide federal, state, and local funding over the next 25 years to address congestion and transportation needs in the North Texas region. The Plan will include roads, transit, active transportation options such as walking and biking, and also examine new technologies, travel strategies, and choices that maximize the use of current transportation infrastructure.

News and Announcements

Not all anniversaries are happy and Nov. 7 is one of the saddest of all. Since Nov. 7, 2000, at least one person has died on Texas roadways every single day. In an effort to end this deadly 18-year milestone, the Texas Department of Transportation, through its #EndTheStreakTX  campaign, reminds drivers it’s a shared responsibility among roadway users and engineers to keep our roads safe. 

To help raise awareness of this tragic, daily statistic, TxDOT is asking people to share personal stories of loved ones lost in car crashes on their social media pages using photo and video testimonials with the hashtag, #EndTheStreakTX. The agency also will be posting startling statistics for the public to repost on social media outlets to help share this important message.

Since Nov. 7, 2000, fatalities resulting from vehicle crashes on Texas roadways have numbered more than 66,000. The leading causes of fatalities continue to be failure to stay in one lane, alcohol and speed. To decrease the chances of roadway crashes and fatalities, TxDOT reminds drivers to:

  • Buckle seatbelts – all passengers need to be buckled
  • Pay attention – put phone away and avoid distractions
  • Never drink and drive – drunk driving kills; get a sober ride home
  • Drive the speed limit – obey speed limits and drive slower when weather conditions warrant
