The Memphis MPO was created in 1977 with the responsibility of transportation planning in the counties of Shelby and Fayette, Tennessee, and the counties of DeSoto and Marshall, Mississippi. Federal regulations require that an MPO be designated to carry out a comprehensive, continuing and coordinated transportation planning process for urbanized areas with a population of 50,000 or more.

In order to meet the federal guidelines, the MPO on a regular basis undertake projects/plans that further the goals and objectives of the Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) and the local transportation needs.
