Public Review - 2020 Long Range Transportation Plan (draft)

The Nantucket Planning and Economic Development Commission (NP&EDC) will initiate public review of the draft 2020 – 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) for Nantucket beginning May 24, 2019 and concluding June 17, 2019.

The NP&EDC will hold a public meeting to solicit comments on June 17, 2019 at 6:00PM in the Community Room at 4 Fairgrounds Road, Nantucket, MA.

The LRTP is a 20 year Transportation Plan and is updated every four years by the NP&EDC under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act, known as the FAST Act, which the President signed into law on December 4, 2015.  The plan provides existing and projected community demographics; the NP&EDC’s vision, goals, and objectives for transportation facilities; and a fiscally constrained schedule of federally funded transportation improvements.  Transportation projects or programs to receive federal funding must first be included in this plan.


A copy of the draft LRTP is available at the Planning Office at 2 Fairgrounds Road, the Town Administration Office at 16 Broad Street, the Nantucket Atheneum, and on-line at
