The Central Midlands Council of Governments and Columbia Area Transportation Study (COATS) Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) 2045 Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) serves as the comprehensive plan for transportation investment to support the safe and efficient movement of people and goods within the CMCOG region and the Columbia urbanized area through the plan horizon year of 2045.

The Central Midlands Council of Governments (CMCOG) is the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and Rural Planning Organization (RPO) responsible for updating the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) in coordination with the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The 2045 LRTP is the MPO & RPO primary transportation policy document. It establishes the purpose and need for major projects included in the federal transportation funding program, identifies activities to address major transportation issues, and prioritizes investments in the transportation system.
