Technical Studies

GRPC staff undertake technical studies on a variety of transportation topics including Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) and operations planning, Congestion Management Process (CMP), safety planning, freight planning, transportation planning and engineering, High Occupancy Vehicle and Congestion Pricing, non-driver mobility, corridor and intersection studies, as well as various areas of transportation research and analysis.

In addition to staff activities, the MS Gulf Coast MPO sets aside a portion of its annual allocation of Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds to complete studies requested from the MPO membership. Any jurisdiction interested in having a study completed should contact David Taylor at or 228-864-1167 to discuss project scope and funds availability.

The public has the opportunity to view and make comments on study materials and results prior to final publication of any findings. GRPC keep completed study documents available. Review the tables of contents below, and email Stephanie at to request a complete copy of any report to be emailed, copied or uploaded. Due to size and complexity, some printings may be charged a fee to reproduce in paper form.
