The Heartland Regional Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO) announces the start of a seven-day public comment and review period for a proposed amendment to the FY 2016/17 through FY 2020/21 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) requested by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). The amendment includes the construction phase for a safety project for Intersection Lighting Retrofit at S. Ridgewood Drive (SR 17) in Avon Park and Sebring, FL. This project was recently added to the FDOT 5 Year Work Program and this amendment to include the project in the TIP is necessary to ensure authorization of federal funds in the current fiscal year.
The comment period for the TIP proposed amendment begins on April 12, 2017, and comments will be accepted through April 18, 2017. The proposed TIP amendment will be presented for adoption to the HRTPO Board at their meeting on April 19, 2017, with at least seven (7) days public notice. An opportunity for public comment will be available at the meeting before Board action is taken.
