Public Comment Period Open for Regional Transportation Documents

The Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) has released three (3) documents for a 21-day public review and comment period. Members of the public are invited to review these documents and provide comments.

  • Draft Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2019-2023 Transportation Improvement Program
    (TIP) Amendment #3

In accordance with the Public Participation Process developed by the Cape Cod MPO, Cape Cod Commission is making the DRAFT FFY 2019-2023 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Amendment #3, the DRAFT FFY 2020-2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), and the DRAFT FFY 2019 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) available for public review and comment.

The TIP serves as a prioritized listing of roadway, bridge, and transit projects proposed for implementation during the next five (5) federal fiscal years. The UPWP describes all significant transportation planning activities planned on Cape Cod over the twelve (12) month period of October 2019 through September 2020.
