USA: Port of Portland to Present PTIP at Commission Meeting
Port of Portland Commissioners will review and receive input on the 2012 Port Transportation Improvement Plan (PTIP) at a public hearing on Wednesday, January 11 during the regularly scheduled commission meeting.
The Commission meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. and the hearing will follow discussion with the Port Commission on transportation needs and a funding strategy to address passenger and freight mobility in the Portland region.
As a transportation agency reliant on elements of the transportation system developed and managed by others to support its mission, the Port carefully plans its support of projects that will enhance market access for Port customers and businesses in the region and state.
After the public hearing, the PTIP will be revised if necessary and submitted for commission approval in February. Once approved, the PTIP is provided to Metro and the Oregon Department of Transportation for inclusion in the Regional Transportation Plan. Projects will then be considered for outside funding through the Federal, State and Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Plan processes.
