MPO launches comment period on TIP amendments

Date Posted: Friday, June 6th, 2014

05 07 14 CTP FY 14 Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Dover Kent County 05 07 14 CTP FY 14 On the Job Training Supportive Services Dover Kent County 05 30 14 CTP FY 14 Section 154 Penalty Transfer (Sanction) Program Dover Kent County The Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization is looking for public input on proposed changes to its Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for fiscal years 2014-2017. Changes to the TIP warrant a minimum 30-day public review and comment period, which will run from June 8 to July 8. There are three proposed amendments up for review for this TIP. One has to do with disadvantaged business enterprise, another with on-the-job training and support services, and the third refers to the penalty transfer, or sanction, program. The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise amendment refers to a program, which ensures that minority and female owned small businesses have the opportunity to participate in Delaware Department of Transportation projects. The Federal Highway Administration monitors DelDOT’s compliance with federal regulations regarding making opportunities (including training) available to small businesses. As a recipient of federal funds, DelDOT is required to comply with FHWA’s regulations regarding DBE businesses. The program represents $684,660 in the FY 2014-2017 TIP. The second proposed amendment would establish a DelDOT on-the-job training supportive service program, which federal law requires. This program would provide training to improve the employment and upward mobility of minorities and females in the transportation industry. This program represents $321,511 in the FY 2014-2017 TIP. In a penalty transfer, or sanction, program, which is the third proposed TIP amendment, money is used to implement safety improvements that are consistent with the goals and objectives of the Delaware Strategic Highway Safety Plan. Projects include, but are not limited to traffic control device installations and upgrades, installation of median cable barrier, installation and upgrade of guardrail, high friction surface treatments, rumble strip installation and recessed pavement marker installation. In addition, funds are eligible to cover labor costs related to temporary traffic control for DUI checkpoints and for equipment purchases related to the improvement of safety data capabilities. This program represents a little more than $9 million in the FY 2014-2017 TIP. What justifies this project are annual federal transportation funds given to the state, and sanctioned by the Federal Highway Administration because Delaware’s open (alcohol) container laws are not compliant with federal requirements. The funds that are sanctioned from Delaware’s overall apportionment are transferred to Delaware’s Highway Safety Improvement Program (65 percent) and to the Office of Highway Safety (35 percent).

Special MPO Council Meeting set for June 18

Date Posted: Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

The Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization will hold a second special meeting regarding the MPO’s draft FY 2015-2018 Transportation Improvement Program. The meeting will begin at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, June 18 in the council chambers of Camden Town Hall, 1783 Friends Way, Camden. Council at that time is scheduled to discuss and vote upon the MPO’s draft FY 2015-2018 Transportation Improvement Program. The TIP represents the first few years of the long-range Metropolitan Transportation Plan. Transportation-related projects must be included in the TIP, or else they cannot be funded with federal money. At its regular May 7 meeting, the council could not reach a consensus about the document and called for a special meeting that was held on May 28. At the May 28 meeting, much of the council’s discussion focused on the South Frederica grade-separated intersection, a line item in the TIP. Council did not vote on the TIP, but asked the Delaware Department of Transportation to prepare a draft FY 2015-2020 Capital Transportation Program (CTP) using the scenario of the South Frederica grade-separated intersection project as the number one priority for Kent County. Under that scenario, DelDOT would then reprioritize the balance of its Kent County projects so that council can review the impact of repositioning the projects at the June 18 special meeting. In addition to transportation projects having to be included in the TIP to receive federal funds, an MPO-approved TIP and DelDOT’s CTP must agree with one another in order for Delaware projects to receive federal approval and funding. The council meeting is open to the public, which is encouraged to attend. Camden Town Hall is located just off Voshell’s Mill Road and is visible from U.S. 13 across the highway from B&B Music. For more information, call the MPO at (302) 387-6026 or (302) 387-6030.
