Transportation Committees

 

The Lehigh Valley Transportation Study (LVTS) is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Lehigh and Northampton Counties.  The body was formed in 1964 in response to the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1962, which stated that any urban area with a population exceeding 50,000 must maintain a transportation planning process in order to be eligible for federal transportation funds.

 

The LVTS is comprised of two committees - the Technical Committee and Coordinating Committee.  The Technical Committee is an advisory body to the Coordinating Committee, reviewing plans, programs, and various other items brought before them for review and recommendation to the Coordinating Committee.  The Coordinating Committee is the policy body which formally adopts items reviewed by the Technical Committee.

 

Beginning in 2016, the Freight Advisory Committee will be advisory to the LVTS on all goods movement issues, studies and projects, and the development of a functional and efficient freight system. The Committee will consider the movement of freight to and from manufacturing sites, cities/downtown areas, intermodal facilities, warehouses, and utilities, as well as the region's freight transportation network (i.e., highways, railroads, ports, airports, and pipelines).
