Transportation Planning

Overview

A Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is a planning body composed of elected and appointed officials representing local, state and federal governments or other agencies having an interest or responsibility in the local transportation system. The MPO is responsible for creating a Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), and a Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP). An MPO can be a regional, multicounty organization or a single county. The Williamsport Area Transportation Study (WATS) is the single county MPO covering Lycoming County.

The Williamsport Area Transportation Study (WATS) Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) fully complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Executive Order 12898 on Environmental Justice, and related nondiscrimination statutes and regulations in all programs and activities. WATS' website https://www.lyco.org/WATS-MPO, may be translated into multiple languages. Publications and other public documents can be made available in alternative languages and formats, as requested. Persons requiring additional accommodations or those with questions should call 570-320-2138.

Mission
