We need your feedback. SRTC is proposing to invest almost $800 million in local transportation projects and programs in the next four years and are looking for input into the projects we suggest funding.
These projects are included in the draft 2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), a document of transportation projects that jurisdictions within Spokane County plan to build during the upcoming four years.
The TIP is updated with new projects annually and we put it out for a public review and comment period. It includes project names and descriptions, jurisdictions sponsoring them, funding attached to each project, and where the funding came from (local, state or federal). The 2018-2021 TIP contains:
- One hundred and six projects, with 12 of them new to the TIP this year;
- A total of $789,399,322 in local transportation investments to be spent in the upcoming four years.
Projects in the TIP vary widely, from those that maintain and preserve roads to construction of new facilities like the North Spokane Corridor and projects that encourage economic development. There are also bridge replacement projects, public transit improvements and new bicycle and pedestrian facilities included in the document.
The draft 2018-2021 TIP can be viewed at https://www.srtc.org/transportation-improvement-program/ and there is a map on that page that shows where each project is located and provides more details. You can pan and zoom around the map to see what projects will take place in your neighborhood or on your commute
A public open house for the draft TIP is scheduled for Tuesday, September 19 from 4-6 p.m. at 421 W. Riverside (the Paulsen Center) Suite 504. It will highlight projects included in the program and provide opportunity to review it and ask questions. If you can’t attend, you can still make your thoughts known. A public comment period runs from Friday, September 1 through Sunday, October 2, 2017. You can comment here, email your input to firstname.lastname@example.org, mail it to SRTC at the address above, or call it in to (509) 343-6370.
