Finalizing 2045 Transportation Plan
On December 16, the full 35-member Transportation Planning Committee will meet to finalize the ranking of projects that will be included in the new “On the Move: 2015-2045 Transportation Plan.” All meetings of TMACOG committees are open to the public and input is welcome.
Ranking the included projects is how people in the region identify their priorities. The final list shows what is most important to transportation professionals and the people in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan as we implement transportation system plans in the future.
The long range plan is fiscally constrained. The projects are grouped as Committed or Priority. Funding has been allocated for committed projects and is expected to be available for priority projects.
In the last long range plan, the 2007-2035 Transportation Plan – Update 2011, the first ranked committed safety project was the improvement of the I-475 interchange at Salisbury/Dussel roads which has been completed. The first ranked freight project was the McCord Road rail grade separation which is in development now after complex financial arrangements were finalized.
The draft plan will be presented for public comment in early 2015. For more information, see the webpage or contact Diane Reamer-Evans (419.241.9155 ext. 117) or Janet Arcuicci (419.241.9155 ext. 116).
