CRTPO held a public comment period for P6.0:
2023 – 2032 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Development in NCDOT Prioritization 6.0
CRTPO is in the process of developing future transportation projects for Iredell, Mecklenburg and Union counties in the development of the 2023-2032 Transportation Improvement Program in a process known as Prioritization 6.0.
The State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) is updated every two years and identifies the construction funding and schedule for state transportation projects over a 10-year period. The TIP is the local counterpart to the STIP. This development phase of the TIP is one of the most important opportunities for public involvement in identifying future transportation projects to be included in Prioritization 6.0 as CRTPO is selecting projects for consideration.
The public comment period was held from September 19, 2019 until October 19, 2019.
The proposed highway, bicycle and pedestrian, transit, rail, and aviation projects and maps are posted on the CRTPO website, www.crtpo.org, under the Transportation Improvement Program tab.
Residents may comment on the proposed project lists in person during the CRTPO Board meeting on Wednesday, November 20, 2019. The meeting will be in Room 267 of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center beginning at 6 p.m. Those who wish to speak must sign up at least five minutes prior to the start of the meeting. The CRTPO Board will approve the submission of projects for all modes to NCDOT for scoring in Prioritization 6.0 during the Wednesday, November 20, 2019 meeting.
