      Members of Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission:


      Last November (2017) the Transportation Resources Oversight Committee for Lake & Porter Counties accepted a policy that would allow sponsoring communities to bring forward to TROC a proposal to change the scope of any given project, essentially the ability to create a new project if there was no way to construct the original project. As mentioned, that policy had passed the Lake & Porter TROC. LaPorte TROC denied the policy, so the draft policy was adopted by Lake/Porter TROC only. That policy is attached.

      Last month on July 31, a TROC ad-hoc meeting was held and the City of Gary presented three proposals to exercise this policy. The city had distributed to all committee members, prior to the meeting, a handout of the presentation with all of the pertinent information. This handout is also attached. The three proposals were presented separately for a vote. One proposal passed, one proposal did not, and one proposal was given a “No Decision”. The city’s proposals and their outcome are attached.

      Pursuant to the Lake/Porter policy is an option to appeal TROC decisions. The City of Gary has appealed to the TPC, and the Full Commission for a ruling.

      TROC Lake/Porter Approved Project & Scope Change Policies

      November 2017


      TROC Lake/Porter policy about new projects substituting for existing TIP projects:

      New projects proposed to be substituted for those that exist in the TIP must receive approval from TROC. Those projects that are considered must adhere to the following prerequisites:

      • Non-exempt projects only.

      • The TIP project must have been awarded at least five (5) years prior to the TROC meeting date of new project request, with no funds obligated for any phase.

      • New project must remain in the same LPA jurisdictional boundary of TIP project.

      • Scope of new project shall be in the same category of TIP project. An example would be a road project substituting for another road project, and not a transit or trail project.

      • Proposed federal share of new project must not exceed 110% of TIP project's federal award.

      • New project must not exceed programmed fiscal year construction date of TIP project.

      • Project sponsor must include a comparative scoring between the old and new projects under the most recent scoring criteria for that category.

      • If the TIP project was from specific funding source with different eligibility criteria (CMAQ, TAP, HSIP), then the new project might have to go back through FHWA & FTA eligibility.


        If a new project meets these prerequisites, but is still denied by TROC, a project sponsor would be able to appeal this decision to the TPC.


        TROC Lake/Porter policy for project scope changes:


        All TIP-programmed project scope changes must be submitted in writing to NIRPC staff for review. Based on staff review, if scope change is determined to be major, it will be forwarded for TROC review. TROC will determine if the proposed scope change is significant enough to remand to topical committees based on project type. Topical committees will review the following project types:9

        • Environmental Management Policy Committee: Environmentally-based projects - water quality, air emissions, remediation

        • Ped, Pedal & Paddle: Non-motorized projects - trails, sidewalks, bike lanes, road diets

        • Land Use Committee: Centers for Livable Community (CLC) projects, projects that affect adjacent land uses, corridor planning, Transportation Orientated Development (TOD), or any other land-use plans

        • Rail Vision/Freight: Freight-based projects, either rail, highway or port related

        • Transit Operators Roundtable: Transit projects, operations & maintenance

        • Surface Transportation Committee: All highway-based projects - resurfacing/rehabilitation, bridges, signals, intersections/roundabouts, ITS


          Topical committees will review remanded projects, and submit to TROC a recommendation. TROC will decide on scope change proposal based on topical committee

          review, and internal discussion. If a scope change is denied by TROC, a project sponsor would be able to appeal this decision to the TPC.


          If project scope change is determined by TROC to be minor, it will approve the request and forward a letter to INDOT LaPorte office. No further action will be needed.


          City of Gary

          Proposed Scope Changes


          Proposed Change 1

          The City of Gary proposes shifting funding from the 15th Avenue & Martin Luther King Blvd Intersection Improvement project (DES#0710064) to the Airport Road Phase II Improvement project (DES#J 600418). The $1,396,000 in reallocated funding (which includes the local match) would go toward improved lighting, signage, and landscaping across 2.8 miles of Airport Road, from Cline Avenue to Clark Road, and would leverage the $9 million in road reconstrnction work that is underway on the corridor. This project will improve the primary gateway to the Gary Chicago International Airport, and strengthen it as an important economic asset for Gary and Northwest Indiana. This shift aligns the City' s infrastructure improvement dollars with a project in a key economic development area, where existing Tax Increment Financing from the City's Lakefront TIP District can provide a viable source of local funding to match the project' s federal grant dollars.

          PASSED; VOTE: 5 FOR -3 AGAINST


          Proposed Change 2

          The City of Gary proposes shifting the scope of the Ridge Road Reconstruction project (DES#l172078) to the 15rh Avenue Gateway project. The $3,000,000 in reallocated funding would go toward the repaving and reconstruction of 15th Avenue, Michigan Street, and Texas Street, between Interstate 65 and Martin Luther King Boulevard. This project will improve the primary gateway between the Interstate 65 and the new HMD Trucking Headquarters, planned to open in Gary in 2021. This shift aligns the City's infrastructure improvement dollars with a project in a key economic development area, where existing Tax Increment Financing from the City's Midwest Center TIF District can provide a viable source of local funding to match the project's federal grant dollars.

          NO DECISION; VOTE: 4 FOR - 4 AGAINST- I ABSTENSION


          Proposed Change 3

          The City of Gary proposes shifting the remaining funding from the Ridge Road Reconstruction project (DES#l172078) to the East Lakefront Complete Streets project (via a new designation number). The anticipated $2,600,000 in reallocated funding would match $6.1 million in pledged state and local funding, and go toward adding bike lanes, and improving sidewalks, landscaping, lighting, and signage on Lake Street and US 12 & 20. This project will advance transit-oriented development and economic development around the Miller South Shore commuter station and improve access to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. This shift aligns the City's infrastructure improvement dollars with a project in a key economic development area, where existing Tax Increment Financing from the City's East Lakefront TIF District, and other sources, can provide a viable source of local funding to match the project's federal grant dollars. DID NOT PASS; VOTE: 4 FOR -5 AGAINST
