Conformity Reaffirmation

The Wilmington Area Planning Council (WILMAPCO) is currently updating their FY 2011 TIP and 2040 Regional Transportation Plan. Since New Castle County, Delaware is in the Philadelphia-Wilmington PM2.5 Nonattainment Area, along with the Pennsylvania counties in the DVRPC region and neither Pennsylvania nor Delaware has federally approved State Implementation Plan emissions budgets for PM2.5 , federal regulations require that DVRPC reaffirm its adopted conformity findings to support WILMAPCO's conformity findings for their updated plan and TIP.

The reaffirmation simply demonstrates that there have been no significant changes to the DVRPC conformity findings for the PA TIP or Plan since conformity was adopted in July 2010.

Comments will be accepted on the Draft Transportation Conformity Reaffirmation for the Philadelphia-Wilmington PM2.5 Nonattainment Area [1.8 MB .pdf] until 5:00 PM on January 14, 2011.
