Proposed Amendment to the 2017-2020 MATS Transportation Improvement Program report

Recent changes in Federal transportation legislation have resulted in the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration requiring a concerted effort on behalf of states and metropolitan planning agencies to develop transportation plans and programs that are rooted in a performance-based planning process.  One component of the requirements is that the TIP be in compliance with the performance-based planning regulations and requirements for target setting by states and MPOs.  Therefore, MATS has amended the TIP report to add a chapter, called PERFORMANCE MEASURES that describes these changes, and the ways that MATS planning processes will change in response.

Because this is a proposed amendment, we are seeking input and comment, either here on this page, via Facebook or Twitter, at or by phone at 989-832-6333.
