The Rural Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is a comprehensive transportation planning document for the four county Lowcountry Region. The LRTP defines the overarching goals for transportation in our region, establishes existing and future transportation needs of the region and allocates projected revenue to transportation programs and projects that address those needs.

Every Council of Government (COG), as well as their urban counterparts,  Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO), are required to have a long-range transportation plan (LRTP). The plans must have a minimum 20-year planning horizon which acts as a guidance document for fiscally constrained transportation projects in the region. The plan is updated every 5 years to reassess the needs of the area. The LCOG Rural Area LRTP boundary, as well as its urban MPO counterpart known as LATS, can be seen in the map to the right.
