Spokane Regional Transportation Council wants to know what Spokane County citizens think about a proposed amendment to the 2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Program.
This amendment would add one new project and modify two existing projects as described:
- Central City Line - Spokane Transit Authority: $20,231,000 was added in local funds, $16,700,000 added in state funds and $54,800,000 in federal funds for 2019 to fully fund the project
- I-90/Barker to Harvard Phase 2 Improve Interchanges & Local Roads – WSDOT: By legislative action, this project was advanced into the 2019/2021 biennium
- I-90/Spokane Port of Entry Weigh Station Scale Pit Repairs – WSDOT: This new project will rehabilitate or replace the existing scale at the I-90 Spokane Port of Entry weigh station and surrounding pavement to preserve the station which is settling due to age and normal wear and tear
Comments can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, mailed to SRTC (421 W Riverside Ave, Suite 500, Spokane WA 99201) or by calling 343-6370.
The public comment period for the proposed amendment runs through Aug. 30. All comments must be received by 4 p.m. on Friday.
The TIP is a document that identifies projects and programs to be undertaken or constructed during the upcoming four years. It includes project names and descriptions, the jurisdiction sponsoring them, funding attached to each, and the funding source (local, state or federal funds). The TIP is amended 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.
Detailed information on the projects proposed for amendment are both attached and on the SRTC website at srtc.org/transportation-improvement-program/ (scroll down to “TIP Amendments”). Hard copies of both the TIP and the proposed amendment are available by calling 343-6370.
