PACTS 2023-2026 Transportation Improvement Program Amendment
All federally funded projects must be in the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) and the MPO’s Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) in order to receive federal funding. These projects are located in the PACTS area and are funded with Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration funds. PACTS must update the TIP when there is a change to any project such as funding or a request to add a project to the TIP. Those changes must also be reflected in the MaineDOT STIP. MaineDOT must receive the PACTS Executive or Policy Board endorsement when any federally funded project has a major scope change or cost increase or when MaineDOT wishes to add a project to the STIP. All TIP amendments must be posted to the GPCOG website for a 10-Day comment period. This TIP amendment was posted for public comment on 8/2/2023.
MaineDOT is seeking a TIP amendment for the following:
- Amend the current 2023-2026 TIP to add funds to WIN 024363.00 South Portland, I-295 Exit 4. The project will be for installing lighting to meet the needs associated with the new access at Exit 4 on I-295. Since the initial funding for this project, the scope has changed to a more complex and central location requiring additional funding. There is a need for $2,294,375 in additional funding, which will bring the total project cost to $3,145,000. The funds will come from excess funding from other projects already existing in the STIP.
Public comment on this TIP Amendment will be accepted until August 14th, 2023. Public comments can be emailed to staff at email@example.com.
