The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) is opening a public comment period to seek your input on the following documents:
- Draft DVRPC Federal Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for New Jersey (FY24-FY27),
- The State of New Jersey’s Draft FY2024 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) and New Jersey Transit Corporation (NJ TRANSIT),
- Major Amendments to the FY2023 Transportation Improvement Program for Pennsylvania, and
- Amendment 2 to Connections 2050 Long-Range Plan.
DVRPC will accept comments on all four draft documents from July 17, 2023 until August 18, 2023 at 5:00 PM local time.
Electronic versions of the documents are available at:
- DVRPC Draft FY2024 TIP for New Jersey at www.dvrpc.org/TIP/Draft
- The Draft FY2024 STIP is available at www.state.nj.us/transportation/capital
- Major Amendment to FY2023 TIP for Pennsylvania at https://www.dvrpc.org/tip/pa/
- Draft Amendment 2 to Connections 2050 Plan is available at www.dvrpc.org/plan/.
If requested, any of these documents can be translated into an alternative format or language.
The TIP represents the region's federally funded transportation improvement priorities and is required by federal law in order for the region to be eligible to receive and spend federal transportation funds. The TIP also includes non-federally funded projects that are regionally significant in order to provide a broad picture of the region's transportation improvements.
The Connections 2050 Long-Range Plan details the long-term vision for Greater Philadelphia including principles, goals, and key policies and strategies to achieve the vision. It also contains a fiscally constrained financial plan and project list for transportation investments throughout the region. In between four-year update cycles, the Plan is occasionally amended to account for significant changes to the cost or scope of Major Regional Projects. Amendment 2 accounts for significant changes to the cost, scope, or funding status for thirteen different Major Regional Projects.
DVRPC is hosting two public meetings on these documents. These meetings will also include a presentation on the Draft Transportation Conformity Demonstration, which will have an overlapping public comment period. To reach as many people as possible, one meeting will be held in person and one will be held online.
