Draft Amendments to the Fiscal Years 2012/13 through 2016/17 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) 30-Day Public Comment Period Announced

Each year, the Collier Metropolitan Planning Organization is required to develop a financially feasible TIP that includes all items that are to be funded with state and federal dollars over the next five years.  Occasionally it becomes necessary to add, delete, or modify a project included in the MPO’s TIP.

The Collier MPO is hereby announcing a 30-day public comment period for the draft amendment to the adopted Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for the Fiscal Years (FY) 2012/13 through FY 2016/17.   The draft amendment is for the reprogramming of funds from a no longer needed Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study at the proposed I-75 interchange near Everglades Boulevard to support capital improvements for the Collier Area Transit (CAT) Administrative and Operations facility at 8300 Radio Road.  The reprogrammed funding will support phased construction of a permanent fueling station, a bus wash facility, sidewalks, and other improvements to enhance safety, security, operations and American with Disabilities ACT (ADA) accessibility.  Pursuant to the MPO’s Public Involvement/Public Participation Plan, the public comment period for this draft amendment will end on Feb. 6, 2013.  The MPO Board will consider the adoption of this amendment together with comments received within the public comment period at the MPO’s regular meeting on Feb. 8 at the Board of County Commissioners chambers, 3rdFloor, Collier County Government Center, 3299 Tamiami Trail East, Naples.  The meeting starts at 9 a.m.

The draft amendment to the FY 2012/13 through FY 2016/17 TIP is posted on the MPO’s website at www.colliermpo.net.  To view the TIP amendment, select “30-Day Public Comment Period Open for TIP Amendment” under the Latest News Section on the left side of the screen.
