7 Day Public Comment Period on Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Amendment #12

April 3, 2018

The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) will hold a 7-day public comment period on the draft changes to the 2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The comment period begins today and will end Monday April 9, 2018.

NIRPC’s TIP is a short-range financial and spending plan for the utilization of federal transportation funding. These funds can be used for highway, transit, and non-motorized transportation projects. NIRPC’s TIP is periodically updated and includes projects undertaken by municipalities, counties, transit operators, and the State of Indiana. Federal planning regulations guide the preparation and development of TIP documents.

Comments may be submitted until April 9, 2018 in the following ways:

  • Email: comments@nirpc.org
  • Phone: 219-763-6060 ext. 106
  • United States Postal Service: NIRPC, 6100 Southport Road, Portage, IN 46368

All comments received during the 7-day public comment period will be compiled into a public comment report and responded to. This report will be made available to the public and distributed to the Commission members prior to any action on these items. It is anticipated that action seeking a recommendation for approval will be taken at the April 10, 2018 meeting of the Technical Planning Committee, followed by action of approval at the April 19, 2018 meeting of the NIRPC Commission.

Requests for alternative formats may be directed to Mary Thorne by calling 219-763-6060, ext. 131, or by email at mthorne@nirpc.org. TTY users may use the Relay Indiana service by calling 711 or 800-743-3333.
