Citizen Input Needed for Transportation Improvement Program

Public Meeting May 23 from 4 – 5:30 p.m.

The North Florida Transportation Planning Organization has updated its annual Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and is seeking citizen input in its four-county region.  You can view the draft 2018/19 - 2022/23 TIP and submit comments in person at the public meeting Wednesday, May 23 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the North Florida TPO, 980 N. Jefferson Street, Jacksonville.  Parking is available. You may also submit comments via email to Wanda Forrest, Transportation Planning Manager.  The deadline for comments is June 8, 2018.

The TIP is a staged multi-year program of transportation project improvements to be implemented during the next five-year period in the North Florida TPO area. In addition, the TIP identifies all regionally significant transportation projects requiring Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and/or Federal Transit Administration (FTA) approval. The TIP also includes a listing of projects that are financed with non-federal dollars which assists local governments within the TPO area with their transportation planning efforts.  Projects listed in the TIP include recommended improvements consistent with the approved Long Range Transportation Plan, and the adopted comprehensive plans of member local governments within the TPO area.  The TIP is adopted following input from the TPO committees, presentations to every City and County Commission, the formal public meeting and citizen comments.

Once adopted, the TIP is posted on our website and as an intereactive tool where you can search projects on a map.
