The Federal Government requires the Elmira Chemung Transportation Council to have a 20-year transportation plan and to update it every 5 years.  The most recent plan was completed in December 2014. The plan:

Includes highways, roads, bridges, transit, freight issues, bicycling, trails and pedestrian services and facilities;

Sets forth the projects for the next 5 years and transportation program goals through 2035;

Discusses goals, issues, and limits on projected Federal funding.
