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 federal funds).

This month's 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)
  • Spokane Tribe- Bus Facility (New)
  • WSDOT- SRTMC Website Update (New)
Detailsof each of those project can also be seen here. A public comment period for the proposed amendment goes through 4 p.m. on April 4, 2014. Comments can be submitted by emailing to contact.srtc@srtc.org, mailed to SRTC at 221 W. First Ave., Suite 310, Spokane, WA, or by calling (509) 343-6370.
