Posted: Monday, March 20, 2017 by: Mary Pat McCarthy | Category: Community Interest


People who want to be better informed about how federal transportation money is being spent are invited to participate in the TIP public comment period March 27 through April 7, 2017. People can review the plan and related map and comment online, or attend one of two public meetings. The Transportation Improvement Program (the TIP) describes what transportation projects are coming up in northwest Ohio, how they are funded, and when they are programmed. TIP projects include major roadways in Lucas and Wood counties. The TIP is not the forum for minor collector streets, residential streets, or alleys. The TIP document (PDF) is on the transportation page of the TMACOG website: http://www.tmacog.org/Transportation/TIP/DRAFT_FY2018-2021_TIP The related map is: http://www.tmacog.org/TIP_PublicReview.htm This year, the map is interactive.
