Public Invited to Provide Input about Local Transportation Projects
Bloomington, Ind. -The Bloomington-Monroe County Metropolitan Planning Organization (BMCMPO) will hold a hybrid Public Information Meeting on Monday, May 22, from 6-8 p.m. in Council Chambers at Bloomington City Hall with the goal of gaining public input for the development of the 2024-2028 Transportation Improvement Program (https://bton.in/kQrtS).

The 2024-2028 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a comprehensive list of planned and federally funded multi-modal transportation projects programmed for the Indiana Department of Transportation, Monroe County, Rural Transit, Bloomington Transit, and the City of Bloomington. In providing feedback on the proposed list of TIP projects, meeting attendees will help shape the project investment priorities for the next five years.
A copy of the Draft 2024-2028 Transportation Improvement Program is available for public review online at: https://bton.in/QjpAX
Residents can also request a printed copy at the City of Bloomington Planning and Transportation Department, 401 N. Morton St. Ste. 130, Bloomington, IN 47404.
Written comments can also be submitted to Bloomington-Monroe County Metropolitan Planning Organization (BMCMPO), P.O. Box 100, Bloomington, IN 47402. Comments will be accepted until June 10, 2023.
The BMCMPO staff will document and share all public comments, questions, and concerns with the MPO’s committees. The Technical Advisory and Citizens Advisory Committees will meet on June 28 to recommend the adoption of the Draft TIP, and the Policy Committee will vote to adopt it on June 30, 2023.
Development of the new TIP requires a public involvement process that includes a public review by the BMCMPO Citizens Advisory Committee, the Technical Advisory Committee, and adoption by the Policy Committee before submission to state and federal agencies for final approval.
