TIP Amendment May 2017

There are currently two proposed amendments to the FY2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) being made available for public review and comment for May 3rd through May 13th.

The proposed Amendments include:

  1. STP-9083-00(004)LPA-107481/701000: Long Beach, Change Pineville Road project termini from Alexander Road to Royal Drive (PG. 14 of the draft TIP)
  2. STP-9137-00(003)LPA-107183/701000:  Waveland, Change Waveland Ave project termini from Dubuc Lane to the city park south of CSX RR tracks (PG. 20 of the draft TIP)

The Mississippi Gulf Coast Metropolitan Planning Organization meets regularly with all of its project holders to discuss project progress and to determine if any changes are needed to existing projects listed on the TIP. These changes can be modifications or amendments.

Modifications are minor administrative adjustments that do not require a public review period to be initiated.

Amendments are a more significant change to the previously approved project, so the MPO coordinates a 10-day public review and comment period alerting the public and MPO membership about the proposed changes and provides opportunity for individuals to submit questions or make comments about the proposed changes.

All comments received will be discussed with the Transportation Policy Committee (TPC) at their next meeting which is scheduled at GRPC on May 25th at 10:30am. These meetings are open to the public and all interested parties are encouraged to attend.
