1. Call to Order and Introductions

2. Minutes of June 25, 2009   pdf

3. FY 2010 Unified Planning Work Program Amendment   pdf

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) has recently made In-Kind Matching Contributions available for transportation planning in the Tulsa Transportation Management Area.  ODOT has indicated a total of $142,000 is available for FY2010.  INCOG is therefore seeking to amend the FY2010 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) to include the matching contributions in the Data Collection, Simulation and Forecasting and Alternative Transportation work elements of the UPWP.  Details of the proposed amendment are included in the attachment.  The Transportation Technical Committee has reviewed this amendment and recommends approval.

4. Urbanized Area Surface Transportation Program Modification

The City of Catoosa has a project programmed for signal installation at four intersections at the I-44 and 163rd East Avenue interchange ramps as well as Admiral and 163rd and the Frontage Road and 161st.  ODOT has included the reconstruction of this interchange in the 8-Year Construction Plan and would potentially alter the intended signal installation as well as trigger federal requirements for reimbursement of any federal funds used for the installation.  Therefore, Catoosa is requesting the cancelation of this project and applying the $412,000 in federal funds to the 161st East Avenue project in Catoosa.  Staff has reviewed this request with ODOT and finds it complies with the Urbanized Area Surface Transportation Program policy and federal regulations.  The Transportation Technical Committee recommends approval.

5. Transportation Improvement Program Resolutions   pdf

The applications for the Safe Routes to Schools program and the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grants require inclusion of the selected projects in the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).  Therefore, staff has reviewed the proposed projects and prepared resolutions for consideration by the INCOG Board of Directors committing to including the projects in the TIP should they be selected for funding.  The proposed projects are consistent with the Regional Transportation Plan, Destination 2030.  Project details are included in the attachment.  The Transportation Technical Committee recommends approval.

6. FFY 2010 Transportation Improvement Program Amendment   pdf

INCOG is seeking to amend the FFY 2009 and 2010 Transportation Improvement Program to add projects to the Urbanized Area Surface Transportation Program and Transit Program.  The amendment includes the reconstruction of Wekiwa Road in Sand Springs for nearly $2.7 million in federal funds, right-of-way and utility relocation for Mission and Line intersection in Sapulpa for $120,000 in federal funds, right-of-way and utility relocation for reconstruction of 49th West Avenue in Sapulpa for $165,600 in federal funds, and construction of the Gilcrease Expressway in Tulsa for nearly $24.3 million in federal funds.  The amendment further includes the addition of the incremental cost of modifying new transit vehicles for CNG fuel and other capital improvements for nearly $12.2 million in federal funds.  Project details are included in the attachment.  These projects are consistent with the Regional Transportation Plan, Destination 2030 and the Transportation Technical Committee has reviewed this amendment and recommends approval.

7. Surface Transportation Program Project Selection   pdf

INCOG solicited applications for Urbanized Area Surface Transportation Program (STP) projects in May 2009.  Ten eligible sponsors submitted 17 applications totaling $43.5 million in federal funds with $14.4 million in local matching funds.  Total federal funds available are anticipated to be approximately $12.78 million.  The applications were screened for eligibility, rated based on the selection criteria adopted in April 2009, and ranked according to a composite score.  Project descriptions, ratings, rankings, and recommended funding are included in the attached information packet.  Based on the rankings and the selection process policy, The Transportation Technical Committee recommends funding projects for the City of Broken Arrow, City of Jenks, Rogers County, the City of Sapulpa, the City of Tulsa and INCOG.
