Intercity Transit Seeks Public Comment on Transportation Improvement Projects

Submitted by Intercity Transit

Intercity Transit invites public comment on potential federally funded transit projects proposed in its draft 2022-2025 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The comment period will be from April 22 through May 19, 2021. The public hearing scheduled for May 19 will be held remotely in accordance with SCR 8402 extending certain gubernatorial orders issued in response to the COVID-19 state of emergency. Opportunities to give public comment by telephone or other remote means will be made available. Further details concerning how to provide comment at the public hearing by telephonic or remote means will be posted on the Intercity Transit website.

The draft TIP details Intercity Transit’s complete program of potentially federally funded projects for 2022-2025. It includes projects also programmed through the Thurston Regional Planning Council (TRPC) and the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC).

The draft TIP is subject to review by the Thurston Regional Planning Council and Puget Sound Regional Council (for projects that include secured or anticipated PSRC Earned Share formula funds), for inclusion in the respective regional TIP (RTIP). Federally funded projects must also be included by Intercity Transit through TRPC/PSRC for federal and state approval in the STIP prior to actual funding being available.

The draft TIP projects could total more than $112M in combined federal and local funds for projects planned in 2022-2025. The draft TIP and a complete list of programmed projects for potential funding are available online or by contacting the Grants Program Administrator at 360-705-5808 or jgould@intercitytransit.com.

The public may comment by emailing (jgould@intercitytransit.com) or by writing to the Grants Program Administrator, Intercity Transit, P.O. Box 659, Olympia, WA, 98507-0659. Intercity Transit must receive written comments by 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 18, 2021, to be considered.
