The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) will hold a 30-day public comment period on the draft changes to the 2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The comment period begins today and will end July 28, 2019.

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 July 28, 2019 in the following ways:

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

All comments received during the 30-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 relevant NIRPC committees prior to any action on these items. It is anticipated that action will be taken at the August 13, 2019 meeting of the Technical Planning Committee, followed by the August 15, 2019 meeting of the NIRPC Commission Executive Board.
