PUBLIC NOTICE:  Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization – Draft Mobility Plan 2045 and Air Quality Conformity Determination Report Available for Public Comment

The Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), responsible for comprehensive transportation planning in the Knoxville Urban Area including Knox County and parts of Anderson, Blount, Loudon, Roane, and Sevier Counties, is required to update its long- range transportation plan, Mobility Plan 2045, every four years. 

Mobility Plan 2045 lays out a vision of what the transportation system will look like in the future. It includes federally funded and regionally significant transportation projects that are proposed over the next 20+ years. 

An Air Quality Conformity Determination report was prepared to demonstrate that the implementation of projects within Mobility Plan 2045 will conform with the requirements of the Clean Air Act. This ensures that federal funds will not be spent on projects that cause or contribute to any new violations of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS); increase the frequency or severity of NAAQS violations; or delay timely attainments of the NAAQS or any required interim milestone.

Drafts of both Mobility Plan 2045 and the Air Quality Conformity Report can be viewed and downloaded at Copies of the plans are also available for review at the TPO office at 400 Main St., Suite 403, Knoxville, TN 37902. 

Comments can be submitted through April 7, 2021 to, by phone at 865-215-3928, or mailed to the TPO’s address listed above.

A series of virtual meetings has been scheduled throughout the month of March. These meetings will provide information about topics and projects in Mobility Plan 2045. Dates and additional details can be found at
