The State Planning Council is proposing changes to the Transportation Improvement Program known as TIP. The proposed changes to the guide plans would severely limit public input on future transportation projects. The limitations would include a reduction in time for public notice to hearings from 30 days to 10, eliminate hearings at the planning stage, remove requirements for public workshops for applicants and to shorten the public comment period. January 23rd is the last day that the council will accept written public comments. Those wishing to submit comments can send email to Parag.Agrawal@doa.ri.gov or call Parag Agrawal at 401-222-6496 for more information.

The next State Planning Council meeting is 1/26/17 and could decide to adopt the new changes which severely limits public inputs at all phases of transportation projects.
