PUBLIC COMMENT

2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan Amendment 2

The Transportation Advisory Committee adopted the 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) on March 12, 2020 and Amendment #1 on November 19, 2020. The MTP is our long range plan for the Jacksonville urbanized area. Staff is recommending updates to include adding projects that have been identified and submitted as part of the Prioritization 6.0 cycle. In order for projects to be scored and funded, one criteria is that the project must be identified in our MTP. You may provide comments on the proposed Amendment 2 by calling (910) 938-1732 by March 9, 2021.

2021 UPWP Amendment 4

Staff is requesting to amend the FY 2021 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) to re-appropriate funds within the existing budget to increase the amount of funding shown for special studies. This increase would allow the MPO to hire a consultant to assist the MPO in analyzing the Marine Boulevard Corridor to determine if the travel lanes can be reconfigured in order to provide greater lane widths to address safety issues along this corridor.  Public comment may be submitted regarding Amendment 4 by calling (910) 938-1732 by March 9, 2021.

FY 2022 Unified Planning Work Program

Each year the Jacksonville MPO produces a Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) to outline expenditures necessary to carry out planning activities by the MPO and its member agencies during the upcoming fiscal year.  NCDOT requires the UPWP be adopted and submitted by May 31, 2021 for the coming fiscal year.

The FY 2022 UPWP is similar to the prior year and is created to further the operational objectives identified by the TCC and TAC. The work program accounts for all direct operating expenses and includes funding for consultant services for on-call services and a potential boundary expansion.
