 TIP Amendment #3 (5 minutes)

Anne Phillips, LPA Staff



In December 2020, the MPO Board voted to release Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Amendment #3 for a 21-day public comment period. Two comments were received and are included in the agenda packet.


Amendment #3 to the FY2020-2029 TIP consists of projects that have been amended in the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) by NCDOT and projects that were affected by NCDOT’s STIP reprogramming exercise. Projects amended by NCDOT in the STIP need to be amended in the MPO’s TIP so that the TIP and STIP remain in concurrence.


DCHC MPO is also amending several locally administered projects to reflect more realistic project delivery schedules.


Three locally administered projects are being delayed to allow U-5823 Woodcroft Parkway Extension, which had a construction delay until FY 31 in the STIP reprogramming exercise, to move into construction in FY 25. These projects are Third Fork Creek Trail (EB-5837), Guess Road Sidewalks (EB-5834), and NC 55 Sidewalks (EB-5835). MPO and City of Durham staff are proposing schedule delays for these three projects - instead of a delay of more than ten years to the Woodcroft Parkway Extension - so that the City of Durham does not lose design work that is currently underway for Woodcroft Parkway Extension. The City of Durham is paying for the design of the Woodcroft Parkway Extension with local funds.


The Guess Road and NC 55 sidewalk projects are underfunded in the TIP, both with federal funds and the local match. These projects therefore would not have been able to move forward according to their schedule prior to this amendment. After further discussions with NCDOT, construction of the Third Ford Creek Trail will now only experience a minor delay of construction in FY 23 instead of FY 21 as currently programmed.



Board Action: Approve TIP Amendment #3.
