What is this plan about?

The update to the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (formerly the Long Range Transportation Plan) for the Johnson City region is underway and planning officials need your input.  This plan is important to you as it will lay the foundation for future transportation investments in the cities and towns of Bluff City, Johnson City, Elizabethton, Jonesborough, Unicoi, and Watauga and portions of Washington, Carter, Unicoi and Sullivan counties. The study is not only about needed roadway improvements but also about how to improve walking and biking opportunities, as well as transit, in the region. To view our current Transportation Plan, click here.
