The Draft TIP contains the Program of Projects or identified list of transit needs to be funded over the next four years. If there are no amendments or changes to the Program of Projects this notice will also serve as the Final Program of Projects notice.

Furthermore, the public is notified that a Draft 2019-2022 TIP will be available for citizens to review at the Bismarck Community Development Office, 221 North 5th Street, Bismarck, North Dakota, beginning August 3, 2018.  Following the consideration of citizen’s comments, the Draft TIP will be presented to the Metropolitan Planning Organization Policy Board.
