COMMENT PERIOD OPEN

OCTOBER 13 - NOVEMBER 12

Draft 2016 Amendment to the Financially Constrained Long-Range
Transportation Plan (CLRP), FY 2017-2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP),
and the Air Quality Conformity Analysis

The Transportation Planning Board (TPB) has released the draft 2016 Amendment to the CLRP, the draft FY 2017-2022 TIP, and the accompanying Air Quality Conformity Analysis for a 30-day comment period. The public and any TPB member or stakeholder may submit comments. The following materials related to the 2016 Amendment, the FY 2017-2022 TIP, and the Conformity Analysis are available for review and comment on the CLRP website at www.mwcog.org/CLRP2016:

These materials are also available for review at the offices of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG), 777 N. Capitol St. NE, Washington, DC 20002.

The comment process on the TIP is being used to obtain comments on the region’s program of projects that are funded by the Federal Transit Administration (including projects funded by the Urbanized Area Formula Program) and the Federal Highway Administration. To learn more about the currently approved CLRP, please visit www.mwcog.org/CLRP.

The CLRP is a statement of the ways the region plans to invest in its transportation system over the next 20 to 30 years. The plan includes regionally significant projects and programs that seek to facilitate the efficient movement of people and goods using a variety of transportation modes. It also outlines all anticipated spending on operations and maintenance of the current and future transportation system over the same timeframe.

The TPB is responsible for developing and maintaining the CLRP. The TPB adopts a major update to the CLRP once every four years which includes the completion of a comprehensive financial analysis indicating how the region expects to invest in the transportation system. In addition, the TPB amends the CLRP every year to include new  projects and programs and to make changes to projects already in the plan as priorities at the local, state, and regional levels change and as funding for new initiatives is identified. Any project that might affect future air quality by adding or removing highway or transit capacity is considered to be “regionally significant” and must be included in the plan, as must any project that will require federal funding or federal approval during the timespan that the CLRP covers. 

The CLRP website serves as the primary documentation of the Plan.
