The Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) provides a forum for public officials, citizens, and other interested groups to establish policies and plans for effectively addressing various metropolitan transportation issues.  The MPO is comprised of five jurisdictions including:  Bismarck, Lincoln, Mandan, and portions of Burleigh and Morton counties.

The Bismarck-Mandan MPO is one of three MPOs in the state of North Dakota.  In addition to transportation planning efforts, the MPO must also develop and regularly update a Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), and a Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP).  More information about the preceding documents can be found on the MPO Publications section of the MPO web-page.
