2018-2022

Transportation Improvement Program Greenhouse Gas Monitoring and Evaluation Introduction

This section summarizes the greenhouse gas (GHG) impacts that are anticipated to result from the projects that are included in this FFY 2018 – 2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). It includes a summary of the state laws and policies that call for reducing greenhouse gas in order to mitigate global climate change, actions that are being taken to respond to these state laws and policies, the role of regional planning and TIP development in reducing GHG emission and tracking these reductions, and the projected GHG emission impacts from the projects programmed in the TIP.

State Policy Context

The Global Warming Solutions Act (GWSA), which was signed into law in August 2008, makes Massachusetts a leader in setting aggressive and enforceable GHG reduction targets, and implementing policies and initiatives to achieve these targets. In keeping with the law, on December 29, 2010 the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EOEEA), in consultation with other state agencies and the public, released the Massachusetts Clean Energy and Climate Plan for 2020. In December 2014 the Department of Environmental Protection issued new regulations that require Metropolitan Planning Organizations to quantify impacts from project investments, track progress towards reductions, and consider impacts in the prioritization of GHG impacts from project investments. The targets for overall statewide GHG emissions are:

By 2020: 25 percent reduction below statewide 1990 GHG emission levels, and

By 2050: 80 percent reduction below statewide 1990 GHG emission levels

GreenDOT Policy

The transportation sector is the single largest emitter of greenhouse gases, accounting for over a third of GHG emissions, and therefore the transportation sector is a key focus of the Clean Energy and Climate Plan. MassDOT’s approach to supporting the implementation of the plan is set forth in its GreenDOT Policy Directive, a comprehensive sustainability
initiative that sets three principal objectives:

Final FFYs 2018-2022 MVMPO TIP Appendix May 2017 22

Reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. MassDOT will achieve this by taking GHG emissions into account in all of its responsibilities, from strategic planning to project design and construction and system operations;

Promote the healthy transportation modes of walking, bicycling, and public transit. MassDOT will achieve this by pursuing multi-modal, “complete streets” design standards; providing choice in transportation services; and by working with MPOs and other partners to prioritize and program a balance of projects that serve drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and public transit riders, and

To support smart growth development. MassDOT will achieve this by working with MPOs and other partners to make transportation investments that enable denser, smart growth development patterns that support reduced GHG emissions.

GreenDOT Policy and Metropolitan Planning Organizations

The Commonwealth’s thirteen metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) are integrally involved in helping to achieve the GreenDOT goals and supporting the GHG reductions mandated under the GWSA. The MPOs are most directly involved in helping to achieve the GHG emissions reductions under the second goal – to promote healthy transportation modes through prioritizing and programming an appropriate balance of roadway, transit, bicycle and pedestrian investments – and assist in the third goal by supporting smart
growth development patterns through the creation of a balanced multi-modal transportation system. This will be realized through the transportation goals and policies espoused in the Regional Transportation Plans (RTPs), the major projects planned in the RTPs, and the
mix of new transportation projects that are programmed and implemented through the TIPs. The GHG tracking and evaluation processes enable the MPOs to identify the anticipated GHG impacts of the planned and programmed projects, and also to use GHG impacts as a criterion in prioritizing transportation projects.

Regional GHG Tracking and Evaluation in RTPs

MassDOT coordinated with MPOs and regional planning agency (RPA) staffs on the implementation of GHG tracking and evaluation in development of each MPO’s 2035
RTPs, which were adopted in September 2011. This collaboration has continued for the
MPO’s 2040 RTPs and FFYs 2018-2022 TIPs.
Working together, MassDOT and the MPOs have attained the following milestones:

Modeling and long-range statewide projections for GHG emissions resulting from the transportation sector. Using the Boston MPO’s regional model and the statewide travel demand model for the remainder of the state, GHG emissions

Final FFYs 2018-2022 MVMPO TIP Appendix May 2017 23

were projected for 2021 no-build and build conditions, and for 2035 no-build and build conditions.

All of the MPOs included these GHG emission projections in their RTPs, along with a discussion of climate change and a statement of MPO support for reducing GHG emissions as a regional goal.

Project-Level GHG Tracking and Evaluation in the Transportation Improvement

Program

It is also important to monitor and evaluate the GHG impacts of the transportation projects that are programmed in the MPO Transportation Improvement Programs (TIP). The TIP includes both the larger, regionally-significant projects from the RTPs, which have already had their aggregate GHG impacts calculated and reported in the RTP, as well as smaller projects that are not included in the RTP but that may nevertheless have impacts on GHG emissions. The principal objective of this tracking is to enable the MPOs to evaluate expected GHG impacts of different projects and to use this information as a criterion for prioritizing and programming projects in future TIPs.
In order to monitor and evaluate the GHG impacts of TIP projects, MassDOT and the MPOs have developed the following approach for identifying anticipated GHG impacts and quantifying GHG impacts of projects, when appropriate, through the TIP. Different types of projects will have different anticipated GHG emissions impacts. The different project categories are outlined on the next two pages with this region’s project tracking sheets on the third page.

Calculation of GHG Impacts for TIP Projects

The Office of Transportation Planning at MassDOT provided the spreadsheets that are used for determining Congestion Management and Air Quality (CMAQ) eligibility. These spreadsheets require the same inputs as the CMAQ calculations, and have been adapted to provide CO2 impacts. The data and analysis required for these calculations is available from functional design reports that should be submitted for projects that would produce a measurable GHG impact.

Projects with Quantified Impacts

o RTP Projects - Major capacity expansion projects would be expected to have a significant impact on GHG emissions. However, these projects are included in the RTPs and analyzed using the statewide model or Boston regional model, which would reflect their GHG impacts. Therefore, no

independent TIP calculations are required.

Final FFYs 2018-2022 MVMPO TIP Appendix May 2017 24

o Quantified Decrease in Emissions - Projects that would be expected to produce a measurable decrease in emissions. The approach for calculating these impacts is described below. These projects should be categorized in the following manner:

Quantified Decrease in Emissions from Traffic Operational Improvement - An intersection reconstruction or signalization project that is projected to reduce delay and congestion.

Quantified Decrease in Emissions from Pedestrian and Bicycle Infrastructure - A shared-use path that would enable increased walking and biking and decreased vehicle-miles traveled (VMT).

Quantified Decrease in Emissions from New/Additional Transit Service - A bus or shuttle service that would enable increased transit ridership and decreased VMT.

Quantified Decrease in Emissions from a Park and Ride Lot - A park-and-ride lot that would enable increased transit ridership/ increased ridesharing and decreased VMT.

Quantified Decrease in Emissions from Bus Replacement A bus replacement that would directly reduce GHG emissions generated by that bus service.

Quantified Decrease in Emissions from Complete Streets

Improvements

Improvements to roadway networks that include the addition of bicycle and pedestrian accommodations where none were present before.

Quantified Decrease in Emissions from Other Improvement

o Quantified Increase in Emissions – Projects that would be expected to produce a measurable increase in emissions.

Projects with Assumed Impacts

o No Assumed Impact/Negligible Impact on Emission - Projects that do not change the capacity or use of a facility (e.g. a resurfacing project that restores a roadway to its previous condition, or a bridge rehabilitation/replacement that restores the bridge to its previous

condition) would be assumed to have no GHG impact.

Final FFYs 2018-2022 MVMPO TIP Appendix May 2017 25

o Assumed Nominal Decrease in Emissions - Projects that would be expected to produce a minor decrease in emissions that cannot be calculated with any precision. Examples of such projects include roadway repaving or reconstruction projects that add a new sidewalk or new bike lanes. Such a project would enable increased travel by walking or bicycling, but there may be no data or analysis to support any projections of GHG impacts. These projects should be categorized in the following manner:

Assumed Nominal Decrease in Emissions from Sidewalk

Infrastructure

Assumed Nominal Decrease in Emissions from Bicycle

Infrastructure

Assumed Nominal Decrease in Emissions from Sidewalk and

Bicycle Infrastructure

Assumed Nominal Decrease in Emissions from Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and/or Traffic Operational Improvements

Assumed Nominal Decrease in Emissions from Other

Improvements

o Assumed Nominal Increase in Emissions - Projects that would be expected to produce a minor increase in emissions that cannot be calculated with any precision.

Final FFYs 2018-2022 MVMPO TIP Appendix May 2017 95

Comments Received on Draft MVMPO 2018-2022 TIP

MVRTA Comment: Correction needs to be made – FY 2022 – delivery of 6 new buses to re- place 6 model year 2011 delivery should be in year 2023 not 2022 – the RTACAP will then be available in State FY 2023 – that’s why there is $0 under State and the $582,240 under local (the place holder number).

Response: Change made.

MassDOT Comments: The MassDOT comments are contained in the two page letter that follows on pages 97 and 98.

Response: The requested changes have been made.

Please note that the changes related to “the error in the Total Quantified Impact field at the bottom of the sheet” do not relate to the Draft document sent out to public review. These changes have been made to a template of projects MassDOT prepares, the Draft document itself did not have errors in the Total Quantified GHG numbers.

MassDOT Additional Comment: MassDOT additionally commented that the project descrip- tion of project # 605306 has been changed from “Haverhill – Superstructure Replacement, H-

12-039, I-495 (NB & SB) over Merrimack River” to “Haverhill – Bridge Replacement, H-12-
039, I-495 (NB & SB) over Merrimack River”.

Response: The change has been made.

FHWA Comments: The FHWA comments are contained in the chart titled “TIP Review Checklist” on pages 99 to 106 below. The column labeled “Responses” are the responses to the FHWA “Comments” column.

Repsonse: The reponses to FHWA comments are in the “Responses” column. Two new ta- bles have been added to the document in response to the FHWA comments.

The first is in the Performance Measures section, the table starts on page 13 of the Main document and lists all of the programmed projects and which Federal performance target(s), the project will help meet.

The second is in the Equity Analysis section on page 129 of the Main document, the table summarizes the percent of population in Title VI / EJ communities relative to the percent of Federal highway funding programmed. This table illustrates consistency between the percent of population in Tilte VI / EJ areas and the percent of funding in those areas.

Performance targets under the new rule are being developed by MassDOT and the MPOs. The dis‐ cussion beginning on page 10 does not contain information about per‐ formance monitoring and the effec‐ tiveness of the previous TIP in meet‐ ing any established targets. A moni‐ toring and reporting system that demonstrates the previous

TIP's effectiveness in meeting those

targets will need to be included in this section, if not provided else‐ where in the TIP. Although this may not be an absolute

requirement at this time. I would

encourage more discussion to help shape this section as a template for the next TIP.

A paragraph has been added to page 12 of the Main document ‐ "Monitoring Progress in

Meeting Targets".

funds, for the second, third and fourth years, this in‐ cludes the likely category or possible categories of Fed‐ eral funds and sources of non‐Federal funds; and identification of the agencies responsible for carrying out the project or phase; In nonattainment or maintenance areas: 1) identification or TCM projects in the SIP; and 2) must be in sufficient detail to make an air quality

analysis; In areas requiring ADA paratransit and key

Does the financial plan identify all public and private funding sources that are reasonably expected to be available? 23 CFR 450.326(j)

The plan could be more clear about target funds available vs. target funds programmed. The roll‐up of all funds makes it difficult to distin‐ guish.

The Summaries of Highway Funding Categories on pages 90 to 94 of the Main document have been updated to include a separate Target Funding section and subtotals. This information is also on the first page of each year in the project listings in "Section 1A Fiscal Constraint Analysis" following "Section 1A Regionally Prioritized Projects" where the projects using Re‐ gional Target Funding are

listed.

It doesn't appear that Part C.3. in‐ clude a status of all projects in the region? Wouldn't you want the sta‐ tus to square with the programmed funding allocated

throughout the region, similar to what you estimated/programmed in the financial plan? Because you lay‐ out the financial plan to include in‐ vestments with both target and non‐target funds, I would suggest a status table on non‐target State pro‐ jects as well.

All previous first year (2017) projects, both Target and Statewide were included in the table in community order, the table is now separated into two tables, Target Projects and Statewide Projects.

If a non‐attainment or maintenance area, does the TIP describe the progress in implementing any required TCMs, in accordance with 40 CFR Part 93? 23 CFR

Re: Merrimack Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization

Draft FY2018-2022 Transportation Improvement Program

Dear Mr. Komornick:

Conservation Law Foundation (“CLF”) submits these comments for consideration by the Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission (“MPO”) during the written comment period for the Draft 2018-2022 Transportation Improvement Program (“TIP”). CLF is a non- profit, member-supported regional environmental organization working to conserve natural re- sources, protect public health, and promote thriving communities for all throughout New Eng- land. CLF has long advocated for enhanced public transportation in New England.

CLF supports a balanced TIP that enhances public transportation, pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure, increases mobility for all, and protects the environment. As such, we support projects such as the following:

 Project ID # 605020 in FY 2018 which extends the Border to Boston trail in Salisbury.

 Project ID # 607737 in FY 2018 which constructs a trail connector at I-95 in Amesbury.

 Project ID # 608298 in FY 2019 which extends the Groveland Community Trail from

Main Street to King Street.

 Project ID # MV0001 in FY 2019 which flexes funds for MVRTA new bus upgrade to cleaner fuel buses.

 Project ID # 608792 in FY 2019 which implements improvements at Nock Middle

School & Molin Upper Elementary School.

Final FFYs 2018-2022 MVMPO TIP Appendix May 2017 107

 Project ID # 608027 in FY 2020 which extends the Bradford Rail Trail from Route 125 to

Railroad Street in Haverhill.

 Project ID #607541 in FY 2020 which extends the Border to Boston trail from

Georgetown Road to West Main Street (Route 97) in Georgetown and Boxford.

 Project ID # 607542 in FY 2021 which extends the Border to Boston Trail from Northern

Georgetown to the Byfield section in Georgetown and Newbury.

CLF applauds the MPO for dedicating flex funding to purchase hybrid buses in support of regional transit. In fact, CLF often highlights this laudable action to other MPOs in the Com- monwealth. Looking forward, CLF hopes to see further investment in the Merrimack Valley Re- gional Transit Authority and completion of the Border to Boston Trail.

Thank you for your consideration of these comments. If you have any questions, I can be reached by phone at (617) 850-1702 or by email at alemelin@clf.org

Sincerely,

Anne C. Lemelin

Legal Fellow/Attorney
