Your Comments Needed On Projects To Be Added To The Transportation Improvement Program

We're looking for your input on a proposed amendment to the 2013-2016 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP is a programming document that identifies specific projects proposed to be undertaken during the upcoming four years. Or for those who don't speak planner, it's a document describing all the projects local jurisdictions are hoping to construct or complete by 2016. I find the most interesting part of the TIP to be the list from each jurisdiction detailing their projects and descriptions, the jurisdiction sponsoring them, funding attached to each project and where the funding came from (local, state or federal funds).

This proposed amendment includes adding 36 projects to the TIP that have recently received funding and removing projects that were fully obligated federal funds in 2012 and had changes to the programmed amount or year.

A public comment period for the proposed amendment starts December 11, 2012.  Here is how you can view the proposed changes and comment on them.
