SRPEDD Announces a 21-day Public Comment Period and Public Meeting for an amendment to the 2016 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) concerning air quality conformity determinations.

July 16, 2018 – There is an amendment to the 2016 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) concerning air quality conformity determinations. The amendment states that emission levels from transportation projects contained in the 2016 Regional Transportation Plans and 2019–2023 Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs) demonstrate conformity with the SIP, the Clean Air Act, and the EPA conformity regulations (40 CFR part 51).

The RTP and the TIP are Transportation Planning Program documents. The RTP is a comprehensive inventory and assessment of all modes of transportation within the SMMPO’s region, identifying all transportation facilities and including the needs for improvement. The TIP lists all federally funded road and bridge and all transit projects in the region in the 27 SRPEDD communities to be funded through the year 2023.

A public meeting to hear comments and concerns on these amendments will be held at SRPEDD, located at 88 Broadway, Taunton, MA on Tuesday, August 7, 2018 at 4 PM. Everyone is welcome to attend, ask questions and offer comments.

The proposed amended RTP text can be found on SRPEDD’s website at www.srpedd.org for review. The amendment will become final on Tuesday, August 21, 2018 when approved by the SMMPO at the next meeting. Comments are encouraged and may be offered by a variety of methods including:
