NIRPC to hold public comment period on amendments to the 2020-2024 and the 2022-2026 Transportation Improvement Programs
The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) will hold a 21-day public comment period on two amendments to the 2020-2024 and 2022-2026 Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs). The comment period begins today and will end on July 5, 2022. Amendment #20-22.05 contains surface infrastructure (roads, streets, bridges, trails, etc.) projects for Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) and several municipalities in Northwestern Indiana. Amendment 20-22.06 contains transit projects for Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District (NICTD) and LaPorte TransPorte.
NIRPC’s TIP is a short-range financial and spending plan for the utilization of federal transportation funding and for regionally significant projects. These federal 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 July 5, 2022 in the following ways:
• Email: email@example.com
• 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 July 12th, 2022 meeting of the Technical Planning Committee, followed by the July 21st, 2022 meeting of the NIRPC Commission.
