The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) Announces for Public Review:

Draft Amendments to the DVRPC Connections 2040 Long-Range Plan (LRP)

Draft Transportation Conformity Finding for:
  • DVRPC FY 2015 TIP for PA
  • Draft DVRPC FY 2016 TIP for NJ
  • DVRPC Connections 2040 LRP

Draft FY 2016 New Jersey State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP)

The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) is seeking your input and will open a public comment period for the above documents. This period will open on July 9, 2015 and close at 5 p.m., August 10, 2015.

The TIP is the regionally agreed-upon list of priority transportation projects, as required by federal law. The Connections 2040 Long-Range Plan is the region's long-term vision for prioritizing transportation investments. DVRPC periodically amends the LRP to incorporate changes to regionally significant projects, reflect changes to the financial plan, and to maintain fiscal constraint of the LRP. In 2015, two regionally significant transit projects are proposed for addition to the LRP. Transportation Conformity is the process that ensures that plans and programs receiving federal aid are consistent with the region's air quality goals.

Please join us at one of two public meetings and information sessions on the Draft FY2016 TIP for NJ, Draft Amendments to the LRP and Draft Transportation Conformity Finding.
