Adding Projects to the Transportation Improvement Program- What Do You Think?

It's that time again- we're looking for input on some items we're proposing to add to or change in the 2014-2017 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP is a document that identifies projects proposed to be undertaken or constructed during the upcoming four years. It 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).

There are three pages of projects we prpose to add or amend in the TIP, including improvements to downtown Spokane pedestrian facilities, 37th Avenue from Regal to the east City Limits, Barnes Road and more. You can find information on each here. Scroll to the "TIP Amendments" section and click on "February" in the table.
Then let us know your thoughts. The public comment period goes through 4 p.m. on February 1, 2014. Comments can be submitted by emailing to, mailing to SRTC at 221 W. First Ave., Suite 310, Spokane, WA, or by calling (509) 343-6370.
