3. Transportation Improvement Program Amendments (TIP)  pdf

INCOG is seeking to amend the FFY2010 TIP to include two projects in the Transit Program.  The first project is the construction of a CNG fueling station for approximately $2.7 million using ARRA funds and the second is a project to modify a parking garage as part of the fueling station construction using approximately $75,000 in ARRA funds.  These projects are consistent with the Destination 2030 transportation plan and the Transportation Technical Committee (TTC) recommends approval.

4. Employment Projections for the Regional Transportation Plan  Web Page

The land use forecasts and the travel demand model used in the development of the Regional Transportation Plan require reasonable population and employment data.  Staff has developed 2035 employment projections for the region and made revisions based on the input from the previous committee meeting which will be presented for the committees review.  The TTC has reviewed the results and recommends approval.

5. FFY 2011-2014 Transportation Improvement Program  pdf

INCOG develops the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) in cooperation with ODOT, the Metropolitan Tulsa Transit Authority (MTTA), and local governments within the Tulsa Transportation Management Area (TMA).  The TIP presents a program of improvements to the surface transportation system within the Tulsa TMA to be implemented during Federal Fiscal Year 2011-2014 with federal matching funds.  Additionally, Tulsa Transit relies on the MPO (INCOG) public involvement process for the TIP to satisfy FTA program of projects (POP) public involvement requirements.  The TTC has reviewed the TIP and recommends approval.

6. Urbanized Area Surface Transportation Project Selection  pdf  map

INCOG solicited applications for FFY 2014 Urbanized Area Surface Transportation Program (STP) projects in May 2010.  Eight eligible sponsors submitted 10 applications totaling $30 million in federal funds with $9.1 million in local matching funds.  Total federal funds available are anticipated to be approximately $14.2 million.  The applications were screened for eligibility, rated based on the selection criteria adopted in December 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 TTC recommends funding projects for the City of Bixby, City of Broken Arrow, City of Jenks, City of Owasso and the City of Tulsa.
