Transportation Technical Committee
September 21 at 10:00 AM
The Transportation Technical Committee (TTC) meets monthly to provide recommendations to our organization’s Board of Commissioners regarding transportation plans, needs, issues, and opportunities for the region. The Committee also addresses the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) (short range) project amendments and administrative actions every month. These are short-range transportation projects that are under review, and will be implemented at some point in the near future. The Committee receives updates from federal and state agencies on pertinent transportation issues, updates from our staff members on relevant transportation planning activities, and reviews upcoming events that are of interest to committee members.
In terms of membership, the Committee includes the planning directors from all ten counties in our coverage area, as well as the City of Pittsburgh. Additionally, representatives from PennDOT’s Central Office, Pennsylvania’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), and Pittsburgh Regional Transit (PRT) attend the meeting. These agencies/organizations receive a vote when matters are brought up that require a vote.
Non-voting members of the Committee include PennDOT’s district offices, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Transit Administration (FTA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Allegheny County Bureau of Air Pollution Control.
Note: Members of the public are encouraged to attend, especially individuals that have an interest in transportation planning activities.
