The Transportation Policy Board for Upper Explorerland Regional Planning Commission (UERPC)/Regional Planning Affiliation 1 (RPA-1) will hold two (2) public hearings at its upcoming meeting. The first hearing is to receive comments on the draft RPA-1 Passenger Transportation Plan (PTP) update. The second hearing is to receive comments on the draft RPA-1 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for federal fiscal years (FFY) 2024-2027. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, July 12th, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. at UERPC’s office at 325 Washington Street in Decorah.
The PTP provides the basis for efficient and effective transit and passenger transportation, and for future operations, maintenance, and service development in the five-county region. The RPA-1 TIP document identifies the multimodal transportation projects—street, transit, highway, bridge, planning, and pedestrian and bicycle facilities—on which state and federal funding will be used over the next four years within Allamakee, Clayton, Fayette, Howard, and Winneshiek Counties.
