Please join us for a public meeting and information session between the hours of 4:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M. on:

Thursday, June 26, 2014
DVRPC Conference Room
190 N. Independence Mall West, 8th Floor
Philadelphia, PA 19106-1520

The public will be able to participate in this meeting remotely via web conferencing. Please register by June 24, 2014 by contacting 215-592-1800 or if you are interested in using this option. This meeting will also act as an information session for the Draft FY 2015 TIP for Pennsylvania, currently under public review.

The Connections 2040 Long-Range Plan is the region's long-term vision for prioritizing transportation investments. The draft amended transportation investments are a result of the 2013 passage of Act 89 in Pennsylvania that brought additional transportation funds to the region, which Connections 2040 is being updated to reflect. Transportation Conformity is the process that ensures that plans and programs receiving federal aid are consistent with the region's air quality goals.

Documents will be available online at, in the DVRPC Resource Center well, as well as in a number of regional libraries [0.1 MB pdf]. The documents will also be available at the public meeting, and can be translated into an alternative format or language, if requested. Please contact the Resource Center at 215-238-2828 if you wish to have the documents mailed to you.
