A pair of open-house meetings on the 2014 Billings Urban Area Long Range Transportation Plan will be held Thursday.

The meetings are set for noon-1 p.m. and 5-7 p.m. Both will be held at the Billings Public Library.

The plan, which is still being developed, is updated every four years. According to a news release from the Billings Planning and Community Services Department, the plan provides a framework for the 20-year vision of the Billings Urban area transportation system, including streets and highways, pedestrians, bicyclists, public transportation, freight (truck and rail), safety and security.

A draft project list has been developed for the plan. Review and comment on these projects using an interactive web map tool located at http://maps.kittelson.com/billingsprojects.

More information on the plan development, including past public meetings and technical memoranda, can be found at the project website, http://billingslrtp.com.
