City seeking comment on transportation plan
An update to the Transportation Improvement Program is being considered by the Great Falls Metropolitan Planning Organization.
The TIP is a five-year capital improvements program of transportation projects proposed for implementation on major roadways in the Great Falls Area during federal fiscal years 2021-2025, according to the city.
The TIP primarily includes improvements to be financed with federal and state funds provided by the U. S. Department of Transportation and the Montana Department of Transportation. Periodic updates are made as projects are completed, new projects are proposed and funding amounts and sources change, according to the city.
The proposed TIP may be reviewed in the Great Falls Planning and Community Development Office in the Civic Center, Rm. 112, 2 Park Drive S., or on the City of Great Falls website at https://greatfallsmt.net/planning.
