    February 1, 2022
    Comments due Wednesday, March 2, 2022

    The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) is amending the State Fiscal Year 2021-2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) to include changes to Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA’s) Section 5307 Program of Projects.

    FTA’s Program of Projects is a list of projects proposed by transit agencies or other recipients for Section 5307 funding.

    “Funding for Central Ohio Transit Authority and Delaware County Transit are always included in the TIP, because they operate entirely within the MORPC transportation planning area."
    Nathaniel Vogt, MORPC infrastructure development manager

    The planning area includes: Delaware and Franklin counties; Bloom and Violet townships in Fairfield County; New Albany, Pataskala and Etna Township in Licking County; and Jerome Township in Union County.

    The Section 5307 funding for the following projects has changed. These changes will be reflected on the March 2021 TIP amendment.

    Project TIP ID ODOT PID Change
    Electric Charging Stations – Route Electrification 3755 112217 Adding $1.6 million of §5307 funding in SFY 2022.
    Rickenbacker Mobility Center 3839 114757 Adding $825,000 of §5307 funding in SFY 2022.
    High Capacity Transit East-West Corridor 3736 112116 Dividing into two projects: East Main Street corridor and West Broad Street corridor. Change §5307 funding in SFY 2023 from $750,000 to $5,843,082. Change §5307 funding in SFY 2024 from $10,936,164 to $5,843,082.
