Public Comment Period and a PublicMeeting for the release of Major Transportation Programs

SRPEDD Announces a 21-day Public Comment Period and a Public Meeting for the release of Major Transportation Programs.

April 19, 2017 – SRPEDD announces the release of the draft FFY2018-2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and the release of the draft Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), as well as the proposed Critical Urban Freight Corridors (CUFCS) & Critical Rural Freight Corridors (CRFCS), all for a 21-day public comment period. There are also amendments being proposed to the FFY2017-2021 TIP. Comments and input are being sought on transportation in the region.

The TIP is the programming document listing all federally funded road and bridge projects in the region and all transit projects for both the Southeastern Regional Transit Authority (SRTA) and the Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority (GATRA). The TIP lists all projects in the 27 SRPEDD communities to be funded through the year 2022. The UPWP identifies in a single document the annual transportation planning activities that are to be undertaken in the Southeastern Massachusetts Metropolitan Area from October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2018. The CRFCS and CUFCS are proposed plans to identify the most important freight routes in the region for prioritization.

A public meeting to hear comments and concerns on these Major Transportation Programs and related amendments will be held at SRPEDD, located at 88 Broadway, Taunton, MA on Monday, May 8, 2017 at 4 PM.
