The New York Metropolitan Transportation Council (NYMTC) announces a public comment period which will begin at 9 am on Thursday, May 24, 2012 and end at 4 pm on Friday, June 25, 2012 for the following:
1. A draft Transportation Conformity Determination for the 2010-2035 Regional Transportation Plan and 2011-2015 Transportation Improvement Program, as amended. The draft Conformity Determination contains a revised regional mobile source emissions analysis that reflects proposed revisions to both the TIP and Plan, as required under the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990.
2. A proposed amendment to the 2010-2035 Regional Transportation Plan (the Plan), which presents long-range needs, issues and choices to guide the regional planning process. The amendment proposes to include the Tappan Zee Hudson River Crossing Project in the fiscally-constrained element of the 2010-2035 Plan. This project has been included in the regional emissions analysis contained in the draft Transportation Conformity Determination.NOTE: The draft Transportation Conformity Determination and the details of the proposed Plan amendment can be accessed beginning at 9 am on Thursday May 24rd through our website at www.NYMTC.org.
