Back To Front Page


The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) has opened a 30-day public comment period on the draft changes to the 2018-21 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).

The comment period will close on March 27.

TIP is a short-range financial and spending plan for the utilization of federal transportation funding. These funds can be used for highway, transit, and non-motorized transportation projects. NIRPC's TIP is periodically updated and includes projects undertaken by municipalities, counties, transit operators, and the State of Indiana. Federal planning regulations guide the preparation and development of TIP documents.

Comments may be submitted until March 27, 2019 in the following ways:

* Email:

* Phone: (219) 763-6060.

* USPS: NIRPC, 6100 Southport Road, Portage, IN 46368

All comments received during the 30-day public comment period will be compiled into a public comment report and responded to. This report will be made available to the public and distributed to the relevant NIRPC committees prior to any action on these items. It is anticipated that action will be taken at the April 9 meeting of the Technical Planning Committee, followed by the April 18 meeting of the NIRPC Commission Executive Board.

Documents and information will be available for review at
