Residents Invited to Comment on Draft Transportation Improvement Program Document Beginning May 3rd
LANSING, Mich. — The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (Tri-County) is accepting public comments on the draft document for the region’s upcoming Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) from May 3-17, 2022. This TIP is projected to invest over $425 million into the Greater Lansing region’s transportation infrastructure and services between fall of 2022 to fall of 2026.
Interested individuals can submit comments via Tri-County’s online comment form or during a public meeting held in conjunction with a Capital Area Regional Transportation Study committee meeting on May 3rd at 8:30 a.m. An overview of the TIP document will be provided with an opportunity to comment or ask questions following the presentation. Participants can RSVP to the meeting at mitcrpc.org/events and attend either virtually via Zoom or in person at Tri-County’s office.
The Fiscal Year 2023-2026 TIP includes federally funded and regionally significant projects that improve roads, bridges, highways, bicycle and pedestrian pathways, and public transit services throughout Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties. These projects also work to address safety, congestion, and accessibility needs of the region. Visit mitcrpc.org/tip to learn more, view the draft document, and submit your comments.
“Our transportation options and quality of infrastructure impact more than just mobility and safety,” said Executive Director Jim Snell. “They influence how we create community places, drive economic development, and prioritize connectivity and accessibility for all who live, work, and play in the Greater Lansing region. This TIP represents a collaborative effort with our local road departments, public transit providers, state and federal agencies, and a variety of community stakeholders – including the public – to invest in what matters most – people.”
Following the conclusion of this 3rd and final comment period, all input received on the draft TIP document will be reviewed by staff, documented, and incorporated into the program where practicable. Tri-County’s Board of Commissioners will consider the document for approval at their regular meeting on May 25, 2022, at 6 p.m. The FY 2023-2026 TIP will begin implementation on October 1, 2022.
