MassDOT will continue a series of public meetings on two recently released transportation planning documents for public review: a Long-Range Transportation Plan, “weMove Massachusetts (WMM): Planning for Performance,” and the first draft of its five-year Capital Investment Plan (CIP) for FY2014-FY2018.
The $12.4 billion CIP program makes long-term investments that will create growth and opportunity for residents across the Commonwealth and represents the first unified, multi-modal capital investment plan covering all MassDOT highway and municipal projects, regional airports, rail, and transit, including the MBTA and Regional Transit Authorities. The plan makes investments across the entire state, is flexible and spends wisely while creating thousands of jobs over the next several years.
Next week’s public meetings are scheduled as follows:
- Monday, February 10, 6:00-8:00pm, Lynn City Hall, City Council Chambers
- Monday, February 10, 6:00-8:00 pm, Main Auditorium, McLean Campus Center, UMass Dartmouth, 285 Old Westport Rd, North Dartmouth
The WMM report is posted online for public review at www.massdot.state.ma.us/wemove/. The CIP may be reviewed at http://www.massdot.state.ma.us/Portals/0/docs/infoCenter/docs_materials/cip_FY14_FY18.pdf
