City requests public input on federal funding for transportation projects

The City of Memphis Division of Engineering is soliciting public input on applications to be submitted for the Fiscal Year 2023 – 2026 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP is administered by the Memphis Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and acts as a budget for all federal transportation grant funds to be allocated across the metropolitan area over a four year span. For a transportation project to receive federal funding, a local government must apply to have the project included in the TIP.

The City is disseminating information on the projects and soliciting input through two formats. A public meeting will be held to present the draft list of projects for which the City proposes to apply for their inclusion in the TIP. City staff will present information related to the projects, which include major capital improvements, roadway resurfacings, bridge repairs, pedestrian and bicycle projects, safety projects, and signalization improvements. Additionally, the website provided below hosts an interactive map showing the location of each project as well as related information. Members of the public can use the website to submit project-specific comments.

WHEN/WHERE: The public meeting will be held in Room A at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library, 3030 Poplar Avenue, from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 5, 2022. An open house format will welcome attendees to come and go at any time during the meeting. Social distancing guidelines will be observed, and masks/face coverings are strongly encouraged.
