Public Invited To Comment On Cape Transportation Planning Documents 

Filed Under: Transportation, More News

The Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) has released two documents for a public review and comment period. The documents are:

  • Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2022-2026 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Amendment 3;
  • Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization Public Participation Plan (2022 Update).

The Transportation Improvement Program serves as a prioritized listing of roadway, bridge and transit projects proposed for implementation during the next five federal fiscal years. The FFY 2022-2026 TIP Amendment 3 would increase the funding to match updated cost estimates for the Dennis Route 6A over Sesuit Creek Culvert Replacement Project and the Harwich Azalea Bridge over Herring River Replacement Project.

Comments on TIP Amendment 3 will be accepted through June 13, 2022 via mail, hand delivery, fax or email.

A virtual public meeting of the Cape Cod MPO is scheduled for Monday, June 27, at 1 p.m. to hear public comments and vote for potential endorsement. More information on this meeting can be found at or by calling 508-362-3828.

The Public Participation Plan is updated every five years. It guides the MPO in its public participation efforts to offer early, continuous, and meaningful opportunities for the public to take part in an inclusive and equitable transportation planning and decision process. It provides a toolbox of techniques to achieve effective participation, reach underrepresented and underserved populations, and comply with non-discrimination measures included in Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Development of the Regional Transportation Plan, Transportation Improvement Program, Unified Planning Work Program, and corridor and area plans all utilize the PPP in their engagement and outreach.
