The Spokane Regional Transportation Council is looking for input from the public on an amendment to the 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program that proposes modifying three projects already included in the TIP.
The TIP is a document that identifies projects to be undertaken or constructed during the upcoming four years. It includes project names and descriptions, the jurisdiction sponsoring them, funding attached to each project, and where the funding came from (local, state or federal funds).
The TIP is updated throughout the year as SRTC’s member jurisdictions have projects to add, change or remove from the program, often as funding becomes available or projects move toward being construction-ready.
Details on the three affected projects included in the amendment are attached and include:
- Adding a right-of-way acquisition phase to the city of Spokane’s Centennial Trail Gap, Summit Boulevard to Pettet Drive project,
- Adding a right-of-way acquisition phase and increasing the total project cost for Spokane city’s Sprague Avenue Investment Phase II- Browne Street to Scott Street project,
- Adding $1 million in federal funds to Spokane Transit’s West Plains Transit Center project and decreasing the amount of local funds for the project by $1 million.
More information on both the 2017-2020 TIP and the proposed amendment can be found on the SRTC website at https://www.srtc.org/transportation-improvement-program/. Hardcopies of both are available by calling 343-6370.
A public comment period for the amendment starts Wednesday, June 21, 2017. Members of the public are encouraged to provide input. All comments must be received by 4 p.m. on Friday, June 30, 2017. Comments can be submitted by emailing to email@example.com, mailing to SRTC at 421 W. Riverside Ave., Suite 500, Spokane, WA, or by calling 343-6370.
