The Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments (AMBAG) invites the public to comment on the Draft Monterey Bay Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP): FFY 2020-21 to 2023-24.
The Draft Monterey Bay MTIP: FFY 2020-21 to 2023-24 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 2020-21 to 2023-24). 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 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) for the tri-county (Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties) Metropolitan Planning Region.
The public review and comments period for the Draft Monterey Bay MTIP: FFY 2020-21 to 2023-24 starts on November 12, 2020 and ends on December 11, 2020.
