Amendment Proposed to Two Construction Projects In the Transportation Imrpovement Program

We're looking for feedback on a proposed amendment to the 2013-2016 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP is a document that identifies projects proposed to be undertaken or constructed during the upcoming four years. The TIP includes project names and descriptions, the jurisdiction sponsoring them, funding attached to each project, and where the funding came from (local, state or federal funds).
The most recent proposed amendment includes a request to increase the amount of Congestion Mitigation Air Quality program (CMAQ) funds awarded to one project and a request to utilize unspent Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds from preliminary engineering and design to fund right-of-way acquisition on another project.

All the details you need are on our website. Find out which projects would be affected, background info on the TIP and how to give us your thoughts on the proposed amendment.
