The Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC
MPO) programs the state and federal transportation projects in our
region and is developing a Regional Priority List for the FY 2009-2015
Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP is a seven-year
funding document for bicycle, pedestrian, highway, rail, and public
transportation projects. Every two years, the DCHC MPO approves its
Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP), and the North
Carolina Department of Transportation produces the State Transportation
Improvement Program (STIP). The Regional Priority List provides
guidance to the State and the MPO on the MTIP and STIP.
On September 12, 2007, the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC)
released for public comment the draft Regional Priority List. The draft
Regional Priority List is available on the DCHC MPO website at this
id=35. It is also available at the public libraries and planning
departments in Durham County, Orange County (including Chapel Hill,
Carrboro, and Hillsborough), and Chatham County.
Public comments on the proposed list should be sent to
ellen.beckmann at durhamnc.gov <mailto:ellen.beckmann at durhamnc.gov>
by October 10, 2007. The MPO is particularly interested in receiving
comments on the relative ranking of the projects.
There will also be a public hearing on the draft Regional Priority List
at the TAC meeting on October 10, 2007. This meeting will be held at
7pm in the Committee Room on the second floor of Durham City Hall (101
City Hall Plaza). The final Regional Priority List is expected to be
approved by the TAC on November 14, 2007.
