The Region 9 LRTP (Long Range Transportation Plan) serves a variety of purposes for the Muscatine County and Rural Scott County planning area. It forecasts future travel demand and freight needs. It also analyzes the current transportation system's ability to meet these demands and identifies what improvements will be needed to address excess demand. As projects are identified, they are then directed through the short-range planning and programming process to ultimate implementation or construction. The plan is updated every five years with the next update to be adopted in September of 2020. Information regarding the current plan update process can be found below.

The Region 9 Long Range Transportation Plan identifies the needs within rural Scott County and all of Muscatine County in Iowa. The plan examines transportation goals and needs related to roads, highways, transit, pedestrians, bicycles, rail, and other intermodal transportation needs. The plan presents future projects that are financially attainable and outlines general revenues that may be available.

Iowa Region 9 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan is in the development stage and set to be adopted by September of 2020.
