About the Intermountain Transportation Planning Region (IMTPR)

The Intermountain Transportation Planning Region (IMTPR) serves multiple purposes that, together, establish the foundation for regional decision-making related to the statewide transportation system. It is developed using community input, public feedback, and regional data. It allows the people of the Intermountain TPR to clearly communicate their needs and priorities for transportation to the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Colorado Transportation Commission, which simultaneously helps them understand what to expect from CDOT with regard to planning, funding, and completing projects in their area. The RTP is updated periodically to adjust for changes in travel behavior, transportation policy, and the transportation system over time.

The Intermountain Transportation Planning Region Commission (IMTPR) is a collaborative of local jurisdictions from Summit, Eagle, Garfield, Lake, and Pitkin counties that work in conjunction with CDOT to develop a regional transportation plan to be included as part of CDOT’s state-wide transportation plan. The IMTPR works to identify regional plan recommendations and priority projects that include transportation services, facilities, multimodal alternatives, safety, and fiscal needs that best align with available funds from CDOT. The IMTPR also considers expected environmental, social, and economic impacts of the transportation plan recommendations to provide for the transportation and environmental needs of the area in a safe and efficient manner.
