FY14-17 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) - Amendments
 
The fifth amendment to BCATS' current TIP was presented to BCATS' Technical & Policy Committees in November (unanimously approved by Policy Committee on 11/19/14), and approved by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) on 1/6/15. Content of the amendment was outlined in the public notice for Amendment #5 which appeared in the Battle Creek Enquirer on 10/23/14, as seen here.
 
In January 2015 the sixth amendment to BCATS' current TIP is being presented, with BCATS' Policy Committee action scheduled at its January 28th meeting (special time 2:00 pm).  The proposed amendment includes the following:  1) changing intersections for Signal Modernization projects by the City of Battle Creek: 2015 work at McCamly/Michigan intersection instead of Capital/Michigan, and 2016 work at McCamly/Jackson intersection instead of Capital/VanBuren.  Each $300,000 project financed 100% thru Federal Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) program, pending affirmation of CMAQ eligibility; and 2) adding FY16 projects to replace transit vehicles for Community Action (4 vehicles) and the Marian Burch Adult Day Care Center (1 vehicle).  Total cost of 5 vehicles $226,600, financed 80% thru Federal Transit Administration Section 5310 capital program for “Enhanced Mobility of Seniors & Individuals with Disabilities”, and 20% thru State of Michigan Comprehensive Transportation Fund.  The public notice for TIP Amendment #6 can be viewed here as published 12/30/14 in the Enquirer.
