Public Notice: 2020-2023 Transportation Improvement Program

Funding Targets for Road and Transit projects for the next 25 years are available for the public to review. These targets will be included in the St. Clair County Transportation Study (SCCOTS) 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan and the Southeast Michigan Council of Government’s 2045 Regional Transportation Plan.

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a four year fiscally constrained document that is derived from the goals and objectives of the Long Range Transportation Plan.  The St Clair County Transportation Study (SCCOTS) committee selects projects based on a set list of criteria.

At the May 9, 2018 SCCOTS Advisory Committee, a list of projects for the Fiscal Year 2020-2023 TIP were approved, and they are available for the public to review. There will be a Public Hearing at our next Metropolitan Planning Commission meeting on Wednesday, June 20, 2018.
