A public comment period extension is being held for SJTPO’s Draft Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2024-2033 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). The revisions include adding two new sections to highlight projects in the SJTPO region and revising project descriptions, expenditure and resource tables (tables 1-13), additional resources allocated to the region, and the glossary. One major change is the addition of the Chestnut Avenue Safety Improvements and Rehabilitation project following the award of the Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) Grant to the City of Vineland. The revisions will be available for review on the SJTPO (www.sjtpo.org/TIP) no later than Tuesday, August 29, 2023. The comment period will close on Sunday, September 10, 2023.
The TIP includes state, regional, and local projects and programs, including transit. Over $1.5 billion of FFY 2024-2033 Federal and State funding is identified for transportation improvements within the four counties and participation in the statewide programs. This TIP introduces new projects and updates the schedules, costs, and funding for projects in the previous TIP.
The RTP is the long-term transportation plan identifying the high-level vision and outlining the transportation projects for at least the next twenty years. The RTP is being amended to include the latest information on projects programmed in the Draft FFY 2024-2033 TIP. Federal guidelines require the RTP to be consistent with the TIP.
The public can view, download the documents, and provide comments on the documents directly from the SJTPO TIP webpage at www.sjtpo.org/TIP.
