The Erie County Department of Planning, on behalf of the Erie Area Transportation Study Metropolitan Planning Organization (Erie MPO), in cooperation with PennDOT and other area transportation stakeholders, has recently completed the final draft of the FFY 2017 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for Erie County. The TIP identifies and authorizes funding for highway, bridge, and transit transportation projects to be undertaken in Erie County over the next four years (2017-2020).
In accordance with Federal guidelines for the development of such transportation programs, a 30-day public review / comment period is required to be held prior to formal adoption of the document by the Erie MPO. The comment period will open Wednesday June 8, 2016 and close Friday July 8, 2016. This Transportation Improvement Planning process will satisfy the Program of Projects (POP) requirements of the transit Urbanized Area Formula Program.
In addition to the ‘FFY 2017 Erie TIP’ document, the ‘Procedures for TIP Administrative Actions’ for Erie County are also available for review at this time. The ‘Procedures for TIP Administrative Actions’ outlines the approved method used by the Erie MPO and PennDOT to amend the TIP.
