Transportation masterplan open for comment

The Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments is seeking public comment on the draft Transportation Improvement Program for fiscal years 2010 to 2017.

As the region’s metropolitan planning organization, PPACG is responsible for the development of a regional transportation improvement program.

The draft “FY 2010 – FY 2017 TIP” includes details about the 65 transportation projects that need federal money. The draft also includes all state, local and privately funded transportation projects, which will affect air quality, and are expected to be completed during the same timeframe.

The draft identifies prioritized projects – from the 2035 Regional Transportation Plan – that are expected to be implemented within the next four years. Projects for years 2014 through 2017 have not yet been added.

Total annual project costs do not exceed anticipated revenue, and the draft was developed to be consistent with the timeline of the Colorado Department of Transportation’s new state transportation improvement program.

Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments is a voluntary association of 16 municipal and county governments that serve the region.

Comments should be submitted by September 1 to Yolanda Roberts at yroberts@ppacg.org
