The public is invited to comment on changes to Transportation Plan 2040. Transportation Plan 2040 is the long range transportation plan for the region and proposes a list of projects which can be afforded through 2040. Projects moved to construction in the Transportation Improvement Program must first appear in Transportation Plan 2040. In the development of the FY 2019 to FY 2022 TIP, one project has been requested for programming that is currently on the Unconstrained Project List:
|ID||Description||Time Band||Inflated Cost|
|M103||Route 60 Freeway Improvements from FR 213 to FR 247, including Route 125 interchange||2018-2022||$15,380,000|
After May 20, 2018, any amendment to a long range transportation plan requires the plan itself to be updated to reflect the performance-based planning requirements of the FAST Act. A System Performance Report has also been incorporated into Transportation Plan 2040, satisfying this requirement.
