What will you be doing in four years? No idea? Unless you have a crystal ball, most people have no clue what will be happening between now and 2018. But when it comes to transportation programs and construction, I do. That’s because I’ve read the draft 2015-2018 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), and so can you. The TIP is a funding document that lists federally and/or regionally significant transportation improvements proposed to be constructed or undertaken during the upcoming four years. The big change to it each year (besides the date on the cover) is that we add new projects annually.
So do you have a project that you feel should be completed sooner rather than later? Check out the TIP at https://www.srtc.org/tip.html and see if it’s in there. If it’s not, or you think there are projects in there that shouldn’t be, or you have any other comment on the document, give us your feedback. You can either do that by attending a public meeting Wednesday, September 24 from 4-6 p.m. at 221 W. 1st Ave., Suite 310 or you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org, mail to SRTC at the address above, or phone them in to (509) 343-6370.
