SRTC Proposes $563 Million in Local Transportation Projects and Programs for 2017 to 2020

We need your input. We've just finished the annual update of the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and are asking members of the public to look it over and give us some feedback on the projects included in it. We're also holding an open house so you can do this face to face with us.

The TIP lists transportation projects and programs that jurisdictions within Spokane County plan to build or implement during the upcoming four years. All projects receiving federal funds are required to be included in the TIP. It is updated with new projects annually and includes project names and descriptions, jurisdictions sponsoring them, funding attached to each project, and where the funding came from (local, state or federal). The 2017-2020 TIP contains:
  • ·         One hundred and twenty projects, with 24 projects new to the TIP this year (a table of the new projects is below);
  •       A total of $563.4 million in local transportation investments to be spent between 2017 and 2020.

Projects in the TIP vary from those that maintain and preserve roads to construction of new facilities like the North Spokane Corridor and projects that encourage economic development. There is also bridge replacement projects, public transit improvements and new bicycle and pedestrian facilities included in the document.

The 2017-2020 TIP can be viewed at http://www.srtc.org/tip.html. There is also an interactive map at that page that shows how the projects are distributed throughout Spokane County.

A public comment period on the TIP runs through Sunday, October 2, 2016. Comments can be emailed to contact.srtc@srtc.org, mailed to SRTC at the address below, or phoned in to (509) 343-6370.

For those who would like to review the TIP in person and ask questions of staff from SRTC, Spokane Transit and the Washington State Department of Transportation, a public open house is scheduled for Tuesday, September 20 from 4-6 p.m. at SRTC, 421 W. Riverside Ave., Suite 500, Spokane, WA 99201.
