Comments and Questions

Comments are being accepted on proposed amendments to the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).

The proposed amendment would add a data bicycle project for the Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS) and remove a pathway project in the City of Meridian.

COMPASS submitted an application for an electric cargo bicycle with special equipment to collect pavement conditions on pathways and bicycle lanes to supplement asset management data. COMPASS staff was recently notified that the Federal Highway Administration selected this project for Technology Transfer “T2” funding, which is specifically for technology and development projects.

The City of Meridian submitted a request to remove a pathway project along Five Mile Creek in north Meridian due to a significant cost increase that outgrew the parameters of the funding program. The City anticipates the pathway will be constructed in the future using other sources.

View the full description of the projects here.

Please comment in writing (via email or letter) no later than 11:59 pm Thursday, February 28, 2019, to Toni Tisdale, Principal Planner.
