BCATS has previously completed and adpoted the 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan in 2012. This plan replaced the 2035 Metropolitan Transportation Plan which was set to expire on July 31, 2012. The 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan conforms to the federal transportation bill, SAFETEA-LU, signed by President Bush on August 10, 2005. The updated Great Lakes Bay Region Travel Demand Model (Bay City, Midland, & Saginaw) was used to identify current and future deficiencies in the BCATS Federal-Aid system for both the AM and PM peak hours. These deficiencies as well as: future transportation projects, transportation issues and concerns, projected funding levels, and an inventory of the existing transportation network of the Bay City Area are be described in the 2040 plan.

BCATS is in the process of drafting a 2045 Long Range Metropolitan Transportation Plan for the BCATS area.  The projected completion and adoption of the draft is March 2017.  

A Public Open House for review, comments, suggestion, and questions regarding this Metropolitan Transportation Plan will be held in the early part of next year for the 2045 plan.

Although the official public comment period has not been opened for 2045 plan, anyone is welcome to submit questions and/or comments on the 2040 plan or any transportation issues, projects, or policies to Jay Anderson, BCATS Director by email at andersonj@baycounty.net, by phone at (989) 895-4064, by fax at (989) 895-4068, or by sending a letter to BCATS at:
