Project Added To TIP- Public Input Sought

We're proposing another amendment to the 2012-2015 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and are looking for your input on it. The TIP is a programming document that identifies specific projects proposed to be undertaken during the upcoming four years. The proposed amendment is to include this new project:
Prairie View Elementary School Sidewalk Project- This project will construct a sidewalk along Johannsen Road beginning at the school and continuing to Northview Lane. A crossing will be installed at Northview Lane to the south side of Johannsen Road and a separated sidewalk will be constructed on the south side from Johannsen to an existing sidewalk west of Oak Street. A short potion of sidewalk on Orchard Prairie Road will be constructed to connect to the existing sidewalk to the north.

Full details of the amendment can be viewed at http://www.srtc.org/ or a hard copy can be received by calling (509) 343-6370. The current TIP can be viewed here.

A public comment period on the proposed amendment starts July 10, 2012. All comments must be received by 4:30 p.m. on July 23, 2012 by emailing to contact.srtc@srtc.org, mailing to SRTC at 221 W. First Ave., Suite 310, Spokane, WA, or by calling (509) 343-6370.
