Transportation projects included in the MTP include major roadway projects related to improve mobility and safety (applicable roadways are shown on the MPOs 2050 Major Thoroughfare Concept available at www.bcsmpo.org), transit routes and equipment, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and projects related to the efficient movement of freight.
Those wishing to submit projects for consideration for inclusion in the MTP should do one of the following: 1) Contact Daniel Rudge via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org; 2) Submit project requests in writing to the Bryan/College Station MPO, 309 North Washington Avenue, Suite 14 Bryan, TX 77803 or; 3) Go to the MPO website (www.bcsmpo.org), click on the Contact Us button and fill out the Submit a Comment Form.
Please provide a detailed project description when submitting requests. For roadway and bicycle and pedestrian facilities please provide the roadway/active transportation corridor name or route number, beginning and end points or intersection and what improvements should be made. Project requests will be accepted until close of business on Friday, March 29, 2019.
