2016 Metropolitan TIP Project Ranking

The Cabarrus-Rowan Metropolitan Planning Organization (CR MPO) has published for public review the DRAFT 2016 Metropolitan TIP Project Ranking and Point Assignment, the City of Concord’s Program of Projects (POP) for the Rider Transit System, and the 2045 MTP DRAFT Goals and Objectives. The division tier point assignment is the final step in the development of the 2018-2027 MTIP and will fulfill the local input component requirement in the Strategic Transportation Investment (STI) Law as enacted in 2013 by the NC General Assembly. This notice also satisfies the public participation requirements for the City of Concord’s POP including the notice of public involvement activities and time established for public review and comment. If no substantial comments are received during the public comment period on the POP, then the MPO and City of Concord will certify the POP as the final program. 

The Cabarrus-Rowan Metropolitan Planning Organization (CR MPO) is the federally designated transportation planning agency for Cabarrus and Rowan Counties including the Towns of China Grove, Cleveland, East Spencer, Faith, Granite Quarry, Harrisburg, Landis, Midland, Mount Pleasant, Rockwell, and Spencer, and Cities of Concord, Kannapolis, and Salisbury. The information will be available for public comment for twenty-eight days (September 19, 2016 – October 17, 2016).
