MPO Technical Advisory Committee to Meet April 12

Date Posted: Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

CAMDEN —  The Technical Advisory Committee of the Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization is set to meet at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, April 12 in the council chambers of Camden Town Hall.

On the docket is the MPO’s annual spending plan, also known as the Unified Planning Work Program, as well as the MPO’s FY 2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program. The TIP represents the first few years of the MPO’s long-range Metropolitan Transportation Plan. Projects in the TIP are ones for which the Delaware Department of Transportation wants to secure federal funding. The TIP also serves as a budgetary guide for how much money will be spent on each project. MPO staff will ask for the TAC’s recommendation to the MPO Council about the spending plan and the TIP.

The TAC also is set to discuss updated functional classification maps for central Delaware. The revised maps reflect efforts between the MPO, the Delaware Department of Transportation, and the Federal Highway Administration regarding how roads in the area are now categorized and defined.

In addition, the TAC will hear a presentation about a traffic study for the Garrison Oak industrial park in Dover and about the progress of the MPO’s Regional Bike Plan update.

This meeting is open to the public, which is encouraged to attend. A copy of the agenda is available here. Camden Town Hall is located at 1783 Friends Way in Camden, off of Voshell Mill Road and near U.S. 13. For more information, call the MPO at (302) 387-6030 or (302) 387-6026.
