FFY2018-2022 TIP Proposed Amendment #2

SRPEDD Announces a 21-day Public Comment Period and Public Meeting for an Amendment to the FFY2018-2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) concerning projects in the communities of Wareham, Norton, Taunton, Seekonk & Rehoboth.

March 20, 2018 -- An amendment has been proposed to the FFY2018-2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and the amended document is being released for a 21-day public comment period. The TIP is the programming document listing all federally funded road and bridge projects in the region and all transit projects for both the Southeastern Regional Transit Authority (SRTA) and the Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority (GATRA). The TIP lists all projects in the 27 SRPEDD communities to be funded through the year 2022.

The amendment involves changes to the FFY2018 & FFY2019 of the TIP. The first change is moving the Wareham - Route 6 & 28 project completely into FFY2018 instead of splitting it into 2 years of funding. The second is moving the Norton – Route 123 project from FFY2018 to FFY2019. There is also an addition of the Taunton- River Trail at Sweet Knolls project and the Norton – Median Cable barrier on I-495 project to FFY2018, as well as a cost decrease to the Seekonk / Rehoboth I-195 project.  

A public meeting to hear comments and concerns on these amendments will be held at SRPEDD, located at 88 Broadway, Taunton, MA on Thursday, April 5, 2018 at 4 PM. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The proposed amended TIP items can be found on SRPEDD’s website at www.srpedd.org for review. The amended document will become final on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 or when approved by the SMMPO at the next meeting. Comments are encouraged and may be offered by a variety of methods including:
