Amendment Would Add New/Updated Projects to Transportation Improvement Program
As happens most months, we're proposing to make an update to the 2014-2017 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
The TIP is a programming document that identifies projects proposed to be
undertaken during the next 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
proposed amendment would add three new projects to the TIP and update the
funding and scope for an existing project:
Cheney- N 6th St. Preservation Project (Update)
Spokane- Millwood Trail- Spokane Community College to Felts Field (New)
