The Corpus Christi Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is seeking public input on the August 2017 Amendment for the 2015-2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) and FY 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The MTP is the transportation plan that states how the region plans to invest in the transportation system. Per federal regulations, the plan shall "include both long-range and short-range program strategies/actions that lead to the development of an integrated intermodal transportation system that facilitates the efficient movement of people and goods." The TIP is the region’s project plan for transportation improvements and consists of capital and operational improvements as well as the means of implementing the goals and objectives of the long-range regional transportation plan.
The August 2017 Amendment includes project changes (to project limits, descriptions, year of expenditure (YOE) cost estimates, and funding source) and organization (TIP: 4-year near term projects, 10-Year: intermediate term projects, and Long-range: projects in the 13 outer years of our 25-year MTP) in an effort to provide transparency and ease of use to the public tracking a specific project. The inclusion of a separate Needs List reflects staff’s effort—per Federal requirement—to demonstrate fiscal reasonableness for all projects on the MTP and to create a separate list of projects for which funding may not be available in the 25-year long range planning window. Use the following link http://www.corpuschristi-mpo.org/01_mtp.html to view the complete project list, of over 70 projects.
Public input by telephone or in written form is invited through July 6, 2017. Public comment may be offered in person during the following meeting:
