Public meetings in Fort Worth, Arlington and Carrollton have been scheduled to gain public input on the 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP),a near-term list of funded transportation projects under development for North Texas.

The Fort Worth meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday July 16 at the Fort Worth Intermodal Transportation Center, 1001 Jones St., with the Arlington meeting scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Wednesday July 15, North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) offices, 616 Six Flags Drive, and the Carrollton meeting set for 6:30 p.m. Monday July 13, Josey Ranch Lake Public Library, 1700 Keller Springs Road.

The meetings follow NCTCOG’s call for projects to award Federal Transit Administration funding from two programs supporting transportation services for seniors, people with disabilities, and low-income individuals. About $4.9 million in funding was available to award in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington and Denton-Lewisville urbanized areas. Staff are expected to discuss recommendations to award five projects the available federal funding.

After public input has been evaluated, a decision is expected regarding what Regional Transportation Council’s (RTC) ongoing air quality and management-operations projects should be continued, which ones can be discontinued and which new programs-projects should be considered for inclusion in the new TIP.

Staff will introduce efforts to extend both new and existing RTC air quality and management-operations projects and programs, according to a news release. Additional intersection improvement projects are being proposed for funding, as well.

Following the July 15 meeting, a video recording of the discussion will be posted at www.nctcog.org/meetings.
