Adopted by the MPO Transportation Policy Board on October 20th, 2010.
The theme of the Santa Fe Metropolitan Transportation Plan 2010-2035 (MTP) is Moving the Santa Fe Region forward with a sustainable, interconnected, multimodal network that aims to provide safe and secure access for all users. The region’s transportation system has been enhanced by a $400 million investment of state and federal funds for a new passenger rail system connecting the governmental center for the state in Santa Fe with its commercial and business center in Albuquerque. However, it is now challenged due to the worldwide economic downturn with severely constrained agency budgets, as well as a lack of affordable housing in the region, and continued escalation in the cost of transportation projects. The region simply cannot afford to meet its long-term needs to build new or improved transportation infrastructure, or expand public transportation services, under current financial resources. We must face up to the challenge to be fiscally responsible in creating a sustainable, interconnected and multimodal transportation system.
The MTP 2010-2035 was adopted by the MPO Transportation Policy Board on October 20th, 2010. Following a request from the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) an amendment to Figure 5-1 “MTP 2010-2035 Future Regional Roadway Network Map” was approved by the MPO Transportation Policy Board on September 8th, 2011. This amendment removed a Frontage Road along the east side of NM599 between I-25 and Jaguar Drive. A second amendment requested by the New Mexico Department of Transportation to add improvements to the I-25/Canoncito Interchange was approved by the Transportation Policy Board on February 9th, 2012.

After mapping, projects can be prioritized for funding and implementation. The highest priority projects will be accessible for review with member governments so they can be included into the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). . Based on concentrations of high priority projects, high priority pedestrian improvement zones can be designated to complete improvements by geographic area.
