Air Quality Planning

Under the Clean Air Acts, DRCOG has responsibilities to ensure its transportation plans and programs support air quality goals and meet air quality standards. DRCOG is required to show the fiscally constrained Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) help support our region's efforts to maintain or improve air quality before they are adopted or amended.

2040 Regional Transportation Plan

The latest air quality conformity documents, relating to the 2040 regional transportation plan, are available for review.

Air Quality and Metro Vision

Metro Vision calls upon the region to reduce its transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions and a number of DRCOG transportation programs actively support that goal, including Way to Go, travel demand management, signal timing, bicycle and pedestrian planning, and transit planning.
