2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program Amendment


Amendment #9 to the 2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program will add safety targets as required by the federal transportation law known as the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act. The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC), as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Lake, Porter, and LaPorte Counties, is required to support the Indiana Department of Transportation’s (INDOT) safety targets or adopt our own on five specific measures. The NIRPC Commission chose to support INDOT’s targets. The five measures and targets are below:

INDOT has adopted its safety target based on five-year rolling averages and reported these targets as required to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Highway Administration. NIRPC will plan and program projects in support of attaining these targets.
