The Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission is starting work on the draft 2015-2018 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), which identifies the region’s priority transportation projects for the next four years. The regional TIP is updated every two years. The agency is seeking public input on the plan, so here’s your chance to weigh in about the projects you’d like to see done. The categories include highways and bridges, public transit, bikeways and pedestrian facilities, freight, traffic signals, congestion, safety and air quality.
