The Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) will hold an open house meeting open to the public on Thursday, March 31st, 4:00pm at the Appleton Civic Center, 323 W. Schlieman Avenue, Appleton. This meeting will include a formal presentation on transportation at 4:30pm to seek public comment on the draft Area Transportation Partnership Improvement Program (ATIP) for 2016-2019 regarding projects occurring in Big Stone, Swift, Chippewa, Lac qui Parle and Yellow Medicine Counties.
The ATIP lays out the four-year plan for Federally-funded transportation improvements. This plan is then sent to the State to be included within the State Transportation Improvement Program. A copy of the list of projects can be obtained by calling Dawn Hegland at 320-289-1981, ext. 101. In addition, highway engineers of each county will also have 5 year transportation plans on hand to provide information if requested.
