PUBLIC NOTICE Draft 2021-2024 SEDA-COG MPO Transportation Improvement Program

The SEDA-Council of Governments (SEDA-COG) Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) announces that its Draft Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for Federal Fiscal Years 2021-2024 is available for public review.

 

More details and Draft TIP related documents can be found online at:

One of the SEDA-COG MPO’s main responsibilities is development of a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) on behalf of its member counties: Clinton, Columbia, Juniata, Mifflin, Montour, Northumberland, Snyder, and Union. The SEDA-COG MPO TIP is the regionally agreed upon list of priority projects; it is a four-year document that lists the planned expenditure of federal, state, and local funds for transportation projects. The TIP contains multi-modal transportation projects – that is, it includes traditional highway/bridge projects, along with transit, bicycle/pedestrian and freight-related improvements. The official TIP is updated every two years in Pennsylvania, but it serves as a living document that is regularly being modified.

 

The public comment period for the Draft 2021-2024 SEDA-COG MPO TIP began today (May 1, 2020). The region’s residents and other interested parties are encouraged to review the TIP documents available at the above link and offer written comments up until 4:00 p.m. on May 31, 2020. The SEDA-COG MPO will convene a public meeting to review the Draft FFY 2021-2024 TIP, receive public input, and address questions or concerns about the Draft TIP. The public meeting will be held May 13, 2020 beginning at 6:00 p.m. This will be a virtual meeting that can be joined via teleconference or videoconference.
