The Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments (AMBAG) invites the public to comment on the Draft Monterey Bay Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP): FFY 2012-13 to 2015-16 from July 23, 2012 to August 21, 2012.
The Draft Monterey Bay MTIP: FFY 2012-13 to 2015-16 is the region’s short range transportation programming document that contains transportation improvement projects including public mass transit, highway bridge, local road, bicycle and pedestrian projects proposed for funding based on anticipated available federal, state and local funding over the next four years (FFY 2012-13 to 2015-16). All projects that receive federal funds, are subject to a federally required action, or are regionally significant need to be included in the MTIP. The MTIP must be financially constrained and must be updated at least every four years. The MTIP must be consistent with AMBAG’s 2010 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) for the tri-county (Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties) Metropolitan Planning Region.
Copies of the Draft Monterey Bay MTIP: FFY 2012-13 to 2015-16 are available for public review and comments from July 23, 2012 to August 21, 2012 at the following locations, as well as web site links listed below:
