NIRPC to hold public comment period on two amendments of 2020-2024 Transportation Improvement Program

The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) will hold a 21-day public comment period on an amendment to the 2020-2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The comment period begins today and will end January 3, 2021. Amendment #3 contains surface infrastructure (roads, streets, bridges, trails, etc.) projects, and Amendment #3.5 contains transit projects.

NIRPC’s TIP is a short-range financial and spending plan for the utilization of federal transportation funding. These funds can be used for highway, transit, and non-motorized transportation projects. NIRPC’s TIP includes projects undertaken by municipalities, counties, transit operators, and the State of Indiana. Federal planning regulations guide the preparation and development of the TIP documents.

Comments may be submitted until January 3, 2022 in the following ways:
• Email:
• Phone: 219-763-6060
• United States Postal Service: NIRPC, 6100 Southport Road, Portage, IN 46368

All comments received during the 21-day public comment period will be compiled into a public comment report and responded to. This report will be made available to the public and distributed to the relevant NIRPC committees prior to any action on these items. It is anticipated that action will be taken at the January 11, 2022 meeting of the Technical Planning Committee, followed by the January 20, 2022 meeting of the NIRPC Commission.
