NYMTC Accepts Public Comments on Region’s 5-Year Transportation Spending Priorities

The New York Metropolitan Transportation Council (NYMTC) is pleased to announce the availability of the draft 2008-2012 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and the accompanying Air Quality Conformity Determination. This will be a meeting where the public will have opportunities to comment.

NYMTC is a regional council of governments and transportation providers that serves as the Metropolitan Planning Organization for New York City, suburban Long Island and the lower Hudson Valley. In the Spring, the three sub-regional Transportation Coordinating Committees approved their draft project listings. These listings along with the accompanying conformity determination are compiled into a prioritized five-year capital program outlining $35 billion dollars worth of transportation improvements scheduled to receive Federal funding over the next five-year period 2008 to 2012. After the comment period, the Council will meet, endorse and submit both products to New York State Department of Transportation and the Federal agencies for the approval of funding investments as noted.

Note there is another meeting today at 3 p.m.

Can't make either one? E-mail comments by 5 p.m., Sept. 21, to Christopher Hardej at chardej @ dot . state . ny . us
