In compliance with federal regulations 23 CFR 450, the Mississippi Gulf Coast Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is seeking the public’s input on proposed amendments to the FY19-22 Transportation Improvement Program [TIP) and the 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). The TIP is a document which provides a list of projects to be initiated within a four-year period. The TIP only includes projects for which funding has been identified using current available or anticipated revenues. The proposed amendment to the TIP and the MTP would add the City of Gulfport’s – Interconnecting Gulfport Project which receives a BUILD Grant Award for $20,460,000. Amendments to the TIP include City of Gautier’s Martin Bluff Road Project (increase federal funding by $1,442,074) & Coast Transit Authority’s – Facility Rehab & Renovations (CTA garage renovation – increase FTA funding by $792,989). Public comments on the proposed amendments can be emailed to kyarrow@grpc.com or mailed to 1635 Popps Ferry Road, Suite G, Biloxi MS.
