Public Comment Open for Communities in Motion 2040 and Regional Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) amendments (8/27/2017)

Comments are being accepted on proposed changes to Communities in Motion 2040 (CIM 2040), the regional long-range transportation plan for Ada and Canyon Counties, and the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).

The first proposed change would add an environmental study on I-84 between the Karcher Road Interchange and the City of Caldwell to both CIM 2040 and the TIP. Construction would remain “unfunded.”

Additionally, proposed changes to the TIP would add, change, or remove projects located in Canyon County. Learn more: http://www.compassidaho.org/comm/comments.htm

Should I-84 be widened in Nampa? Submit your comments by May 14! (4/28/2017)
The Idaho Transportation Department is proposing to widen Interstate 84 in Nampa between the Karcher Road (Midland Boulevard) interchange and the Franklin Boulevard interchange.

For this to happen, COMPASS must amend the regional long-range transportation plan (Communities in Motion 2040) and the regional budget of federal transportation funding, called the Regional Transportation Improvement Program, or TIP.

COMPASS is requesting feedback on these proposed amendments – should Communities in Motion 2040 and TIP be amended to add this widening project?

Comments were accepted through 11:59 pm, Sunday, May 14, 2017. The public comment period for this amendment has now closed.
