Presentations
Transportation Improvement Program: Fiscal Years 2021 - 2024

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a federally and state-mandated list of transportation projects with committed federal, State and local funding within a four-year period. Staff will present an overview of the TIP development process and provide a draft list of active projects in the region.
 
Proposals on Two Major Projects
The Regional Transportation Council (RTC) has considered funding a transportation improvement associated with a transformational land use change at the old Collin Creek Mall site.  It involves a mixed-use development with transit connections to the Downtown Plano Light Rail Station. Additionally, the RTC has been asked to fund a change order of $20 million on the Trinity River Bridges in Fort Worth to help speed up the completion.  Both projects will be presented for public review and comment.
 
Metropolitan Transportation Plan Policy Bundle: Round 4
To encourage the development of alternative, strategic solutions, Mobility 2045 includes a list of voluntary policies that local governments and transportation agencies can choose to adopt. These policies aim to address issues affecting transportation in the region and cover a wide range of topics. Staff will present an overview of how the Mobility 2045 Policy Bundle Program works and how agencies work together to achieve the goals of the plan.
 
Start of 2020 Ozone Season
The 2020 ozone season begins March 1 and runs through November 30, 2020. The Dallas-Fort Worth region does not meet the federal air quality standard for the pollutant ozone, and NCTCOG staff continues to implement various projects and programs to improve air quality and protect public health. Staff will present an ozone season update as well as strategies to help reduce air pollution.
 
Dallas Fort Worth Clean Cities Recognition and Annual Survey Results
Handout

Staff will provide an overview of the 2018 DFW Annual Fleet Survey results, which include statistics on the overall energy impact of fleets. Entities who were recognized for their transportation energy reduction efforts and strategies will also be highlighted.

Proposed Modifications to the List of Funded Projects
A comprehensive list of funded transportation projects through 2022 is maintained in the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Projects with committed funds from federal, State and local sources are included in the TIP. To maintain an accurate project listing, this document is updated on a regular basis. It is posted here for review and comment.

Resource & Information
Regional Smoking Vehicle Program (RSVP)
Since 2007, the RSVP has allowed North Central Texans to help improve air quality by anonymously reporting vehicles emitting visible smoke and pollution. Educational material and information on how to report a smoking vehicle is available upon request. More information: www.smokingvehicle.net.
 
Vehicle Incentives & Funding Opportunities
NCTCOG maintains a list of funding opportunities and incentives for projects that reduce air pollution from vehicles or help improve energy efficiency.  Examples of projects include, but are not limited to, replacing older vehicles, purchasing new electric vehicles or building alternative fuel infrastructure.  Eligible recipients can include citizens as well as companies or fleets.  More information: www.nctcog.org/aqfunding.
