The Long Range Planning Division is responsible for the planning, development and management of statewide transportation studies and planning tools that help guide the policies and programs of TDOT and its various divisions. The division identifies transportation needs through the analysis of travel and safety data, and engages the communities to obtain public input on transportation investments. Specific responsibilities include developing the statewide long range transportation plan, preparation of corridor studies, university research, travel data collection, feasibility studies and metropolitan and rural transportation planning coordination. The division is also responsible for GIS mapping and data visualization.

The mission of the Long Range Planning Division is to play an active role in planning transportation strategies that improve safety, increase mobility, and encourage economic development in Tennessee.
