Transportation Improvement Program
The Greater Bridgeport and Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization (GBVMPO) has developed the draft Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for the Greater Bridgeport and Valley planning regions. The TIP lists all proposed highway and transit improvement projects programmed to receive federal financial assistance from the US Department of Transportation – Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration – over the next four federal fiscal years. A thirty (30) day review and comment period has been established, beginning on August 24, 2020 and ending on September 24th, 2020.
The public is welcomed and encouraged to review and comment on the MPO’s draft TIP, as well as the draft STIP. All documents can be viewed by clicking here.
The GBVMPO will hold a virtual public information meeting concerning the draft STIP/TIP and related air quality assessment on Thursday, September 17th at 5:00 PM. Agency and CTDOT staff will be available at 4:30 PM to informally discuss any aspects relating to the draft TIP/STIP and any other transportation issues and concerns. In case of an unforeseen event on the 17th, the rain date will be Monday, September 21st.
The MPO will consider endorsement of the draft TIP and adoption of the Ozone and PM2.5 Air Quality Conformity Statements at a virtual regular meeting to be held on Thursday, September 24th, 2020 at 10 am. The public is invited to attend this virtual MPO meeting and will be afforded an opportunity to comment on the draft TIP and air quality conformity determinations before they are considered by the MPO.
