SEMCOG invites public comment on amendment to:
FY 2014-2017 Transportation Improvement Program
SEMCOG, the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments, is seeking comment on the amendment of projects to the FY 2014-2017 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP is a list of projects from the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan selected for funding by cities, villages, county road agencies, transit providers, and the Michigan Department of Transportation.
Twenty-five projects are either being added or have a major change in scope. Another 13 are being deleted. Additions include nine pavement preservation projects, eight bridge projects (primarily the Blue Water Bridge), a safety project, a nonmotorized project, and two each that can be categorized as transit, roadside, or capacity. Deletions include many Detroit Department of Transportation (DDOT) projects being removed because of changes in priorities.
The amendment requires all proposed projects to undergo a series of evaluations, including identifying financial resources, an air quality conformity review, an environmental justice analysis, and a public comment process.
Project details and evaluation results are available online or from the SEMCOG Information Center at 313-324-3330.
Please address written comments to SEMCOG Information Center, 1001 Woodward Avenue, Suite 1400, Detroit, MI 48226; send faxes to 313-961-4869; call 313-324-3330, or e-mail InfoCenter@semcog.org. Comments can be made in person at the following meetings where the amendment will be considered:
Investing in transportation has benefits that extend beyond the system itself. Proposed TIP projects will increase the efficiency of the transportation system. Investing in transportation results in maintaining or increasing employment in the region and state, particularly in the construction and transportation sectors of the economy. Additional employment is generated in construction supply and transportation equipment manufacturing industries.
SEMCOG is the only organization in Southeast Michigan that brings together all governments to solve regional challenges and enhance the quality of life.
