SRPEDD Announces a 21-day Public Comment Period and a Virtual Public Meeting to hear comments for FFY2021-2025 TIP amendments involving New Bedford and Seekonk projects and FFY2021 UPWP amendments involving GATRA & SRTA.
January 19, 2021 – The FFY2021-2025 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is being amended due to an increase in the New Bedford-Rockdale at Allen intersection improvements project, and a decrease in the Seekonk-Route 44 resurfacing project. The FFY2021 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is being amended to adjust transit funding. For GATRA, the removal Task 4.2 Transit Data Maintenance/NTD due to COVID-19. Those funds are transferred to fund Task 4.1 – GATRA Technical Planning Assistance. For SRTA, a change in scope and proposed budget for Task 4.3 – SRTA Technical Planning Assistance.

The UPWP identifies all of the annual transportation planning activities that are to be undertaken in the Southeastern Massachusetts Metropolitan Area (SRPEDD region) from 10-1-2020 to 9-30-2021. 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).

A public meeting on these amendments will be held remotely on Thursday, February 11, 2021 from 5-6 PM due to the state of emergency in Massachusetts. Everyone is welcome to attend, ask questions and offer comments. The meeting will be conducted through the Microsoft ZOOM App. This link provides the information to allow participants to connect to the meeting through a computer, smart phone or regular telephone. https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/categories/200101697.
