Boston Region MPO Revised TIP Amendment Meeting

Thursday, March 1st - 10:00am
@ State Transportation Building, Conference Rooms 2 & 3, 10 Park Plaza, Boston [map]

The Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) recently circulated for public review and comment an important transportation planning document: a Draft Amendment to the FFYs 2012–2015 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The MPO has made minor changes to this proposed amendment to add two new projects: a bridge project in Danvers and a new discretionary grant award for a Pay-as-You-Drive Insurance Pilot Program.

The public comment period for the revised proposed amendment will end on Tuesday, February 21, 2012. The MPO is planning to take action on the amendment at its meeting currently scheduled for March 1, 2012.

Members of the public are invited to attend. Comments on the draft amendment will be accepted in writing at the address below before the close of the public comment period and at the meeting.

For details, including information on the meeting and copies of the revised proposed amendment, refer to the MPO’s website, beginning February 3. Also on its website are the MPO’s nondiscrimination statement and related information.

Copies of the document are also obtainable by contacting MPO staff: by mail at 10 Park Plaza, Suite 2150, Boston, MA 02116-3968; by voice at (617) 973-7100; by TTY at (617) 973-7089; by fax at (617) 973-8855; or by e-mail. Copies are free of charge and, upon request, will be made available in CD, print, and accessible formats.

The MBTA, which is the FTA Section 5307(c) applicant, has consulted with the MPO and concurs that the public involvement process adopted by the MPO for the development of the TIP satisfies the public hearing requirements that pertain to the development of the Program of Projects for regular Section 5307, Urbanized Area Formula Program, grant applications, including the provision for public notice and the time established for public review and comment.
