Transportation Improvement Plan Emergency Update
2019-2022 TIP Emergency Amendment
PUBLIC NOTICE 03-01-2019-03-07-2019
The St. Joseph Area Transportation Study Organization (SJATSO), is releasing the FY2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Emergency Amendment for public comment. All municipalities and agencies within the metropolitan area who have federally funded transportation projects must have their projects approved and incorporated as part of the TIP. It is also recommended that transportation projects significant to the region be added, even if they are not using federal funds, to better help coordinate project development and phasing regionally. Comments will be received until March 7, 2019. The Final TIP will be discussed as a part of the formal agenda of the SJATSO Technical Committee on Thursday, March 14 at 10:30 at the City of St. Joseph Streets Department. The full agenda for the committee meetings will be available online at http://stjoempo.org/committees/; paper copies available upon request. To request interpreter services and more please contact the number or email below 24 hours in advance.

2019 Safety Targets
Per the FAST Act, the St. Joseph Area Transportation Study Organization is working to establish safety targets using the following measures: number of fatalities, the fatality rate per 100 million VMT, number of serious injuries, serious injury rate per 100 million VMT, number of non-motorized fatalities and serious injuries. These safety targets were reviewed in the February E-VOTE; it was agreed by both Technical and Coordinating Committees that the MPO would establish their own targets separate from the state DOTs. The Technical Committee approved the suggested targets of 11 fatalities with a fatality rate of 1.14, 107 serious injuries with a rate of 16.14 and 140.82 non-motorized fatalities and serious injuries. If you have any comments or questions please contact St. Joseph City Hall, 1100 Frederick Avenue. The Targets are due February 28th, 2019. For additional information or to submit comments/questions please visit our website stjoempo.org or contact staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 816-236-1489.
