 FY 2015-2018 Transportation Improvement Program as Amended through April 2015

Final Report prepared April 2015

 

Part A.   Introduction

 

Part A. 1.  TIP Development Process

 

Federal transportation authorization legislation establishes funding categories for transportation projects that may be eligible for Federal funding and sets maximum funding levels per category for each year of the legislation.  Projects in this TIP are planned to be primarily funded through the federal transportation act titled “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21)” that was signed into law July 6, 2012.

 

            It is the responsibility of the Federally mandated, State designated regional Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO) to carry out the Federal transportation planning process in their respective urbanized area and prepare many federal transportation documents, including the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).  This process, along with the MPOs, was established in order to include local and regional input in the Federal transportation planning process.

 

            Based on regulations promulgated by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), any transportation project funded through the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), or the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) must be listed in the appropriate region's Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).  Without such a listing, Federal Highway funds cannot be expended by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) on local or State projects.  Similarly, the Merrimack Valley Regional Transit Authority (MVRTA) can only receive federal funds for projects listed in the TIP. 


 

 

Merrimack Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization (MVMPO)

 

The MVMPO was first created by the Governor of Massachusetts in 1972. The MVMPO covers the same 15-community geographic area that defines the MVPC region and the Merrimack Valley Regional Transit Authority service area. The current MVMPO membership is as follows:

 

·         Secretary of Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT)- Stephanie Pollack

·         MassDOT Acting Highway Division Administrator                                -Thomas Tinlin

·         Boston MPO                                                                                           -Stephanie Pollack

·         Northern Middlesex MPO                                                                                 -Matt Hanson           

·         Nashua Planning Commission MPO (NH)                                      -Karin Elmer

 

 

The TIP has been prepared in accordance with 23 CFR 450.324.

 

Projects that appear in the TIP were initiated and selected from a number of sources.  Bridge projects have been selected and developed by the MassDOT's Bridge section largely based upon the results of their ongoing bridge maintenance program.  The Department has made it a priority to develop projects that would correct problems in “Structurally Deficient” (SD) bridges.  The region’s Congestion Management Process is used to identify intersections and roadways where significant congestion exists, and measures the levels of congestion at these locations.   This information has been used by local communities to develop roadway

projects that are programmed in the TIP. Similarly, locations identified as having safety problems in the region’s Safety Monitoring System or as a "crash cluster" by MassDOT based on the three most recent years of crash have been used by the Department and local communities to develop TIP projects.

 

Part A. 2.  Prioritization

 

The FFY 2015-2018 Merrimack Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization’s Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) contains federal-aid project programming information for four years.  For each year, gross estimates of project costs are listed in the federal fiscal year of the proposed advertise date.  Federal fiscal years begin on October 1 and run through September 30.  For example, FFY 2015 begins on October 1, 2014 and ends on September 30, 2015.  The advertising dates shown for roadway projects were determined based on information provided by the Capital Expenditure and Program Office within MassDOT, the MassDOT District 4 Office, and MVMPO member communities.  The MVRTA and MassDOT's Office of Rail and Transit determined programming dates for transit projects. 

 

Projects are programmed in the region’s TIP based on a number of factors.  These include the project’s score based upon the MPO’s Transportation Evaluation Criteria, project cost and the availability of STP, CMAQ, and HSIP and TAP funding in the years covered in the document.  Road and bridge project selection is also largely dependent upon the current and expected design status for each project, which can be affected by such factors as environmental permitting and Right-of-Way (ROW) status.  For bridge projects, information from MassDOT's Bridge section is also given primary consideration when scheduling projects.

 

Transportation Evaluation Criteria

           

In 2003, the MPOs worked with the then Massachusetts Executive Office of Transportation and Public Works (EOTPW) to develop objective evaluation criteria that could be applied to transportation projects in the Commonwealth.  Early in 2004, EOTPW asked planning staff from the then MassHighway Planning, the MassHighway district offices and the regional planning agencies to apply these criteria to projects within their respective Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs).  Application of these criteria include not only an evaluation of the magnitude of improvement in the condition, mobility, and safety of transportation projects, but also an evaluation of their community effects and support, the land use and economic development impact, and the environmental effects.

 

The evaluation criteria are listed in Appendix C.  The resulting Transportation Evaluation Criteria (TEC) scores for selected projects in the Merrimack Valley region that were derived by applying these criteria are shown in the table in Appendix C of this document and also in the 'Additional Information' column in the project listings.   It is the goal of the MVMPO that these criteria ratings, along with information related to the readiness of projects, will make the planning process, and more specifically, the selection and prioritization of projects, more transparent to the general public.

 

The use of these Transportation Evaluation Criteria (TEC) also allows the Merrimack Valley MPO to meet MAP-21’s requirements for programming TAP funding through a   competitive process and, in general helps to manage performance by focusing available funding on the highest regional priorities. It also helps to draw attention to the reader that MAP-21 is a very Performance Measure-oriented piece of legislation.

 

In June 2000, the Task Force of State and Regional Officials to Define, Develop and Monitor a Balanced Statewide Road and Bridge Program was created to develop a Memorandum of Understanding that defined the content of and the Commonwealth’s commitment to maintaining a significant statewide bridge and road program.  Included in this MOU was a provision calling for the development of a cooperative process for state and regional officials to identify a priority listing of non-federal aid construction projects that will be considered by the state in selecting state-aid projects.  The non-federal aid road and bridge project lists included in the TIP are to be developed by the regions based on the amount of state roadway and bridge money that can reasonably be expected to be available in the coming fiscal year.  It should be noted that these reasonably expected non-federal aid funding figures are not “targets”, but guides that assist the state and the regions in identifying priority projects and establishing a realistic project programming and implementation schedule. 

 

To implement this provision of the MOU, this year’s TIP includes sections that identify the MPO’s priority road and bridge projects using a format prescribed by MassDOT’s Office of Transportation Planning.  For federally funded projects, the Merrimack Valley MPO has established the following programming categories:

 

Section 1A

·         Federal-Aid STP Projects Using MVMPO Target Authority (STP, STP-TE)

·         Federal-Aid CMAQ Projects Using MVMPO Target

·         Federal-Aid HSIP Projects Using MVMPO Target

·         Federal-Aid TAP Projects Using MVMPO Target

           

 

            Section 1B

·         Federal-Aid State Category Bridge Projects (provided by MassDOT)

 

Section 1C

·         Federal-Aid Non-target Projects (federally-funded non-target regional projects such as HPP, federal discretionary, Omnibus 330, Section 115, etc.)

 

Section 1D

·         Federal-Aid major infrastructure and other state category projects, i.e., Major Infrastructure, Interstate Maintenance, statewide CMAQ, National Highway System, etc.)

 

Non-federally funded projects have been assigned to one of the following categories:

 

Section 2A

·         Non-Federal-Aid Other Projects (only projects for which NFA funds have been specifically made available)

 

Section 2B

·         Non-Federal-Aid Bridge Projects (provided by Mass Highway)

·         Appendices A and B, Other Regional Priorities (projects for which funding has not been identified)

 

Part A. 3. Public Participation

 

The principal objective of this document is the provision of an additional point for public access to and review of the transportation planning process.  This 2015-2018 Transportation Improvement Program was developed in accordance with the Public Participation Process established for the Merrimack Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization (MVMPO).  The MVMPO adopted its current Public Involvement Process in December 2009 and amended in 2010.  The Process applies to the development of the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).  The Public Involvement Process endorsed by the MVMPO is also used by the MVRTA as its public involvement process.  The notice of public involvement and time established for review and comment for the development of this TIP satisfies the Program of Project requirements established by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

The Merrimack Valley MPO’s 2009 Public Participation Plan, as amended, reflects the  consultation requirements of SAFETEA-LU (23 CFR 450.316(3)(b) for the development of Regional Transportation Plans and Transportation Improvement Programs.  This document identifies a number of new stakeholders to be consulted in developing these documents.  In developing the draft FY 2015-2018 Transportation Improvement Program, all MVMPO stakeholders were given notice that the process of developing the FY 2015-2018 TIP was beginning and were provided with a preliminary listing of TIP projects before the release of the draft.   Stakeholders will also be notified of the availability of the document for public review and comment.

In accordance with this process, public notice of the Draft Amendments to the 2015-2018 Transportation Improvement Program was published in the Lawrence Eagle Tribune, the Newburyport Daily News, Haverhill Gazette (Published Weekly) and Rumbo News informing the public of its right to comment on the document which would be available at the MVPC office, the MVPC website and local libraries from February 28, 2015 through March 30, 2015,  It said that comments would be received through March 30, 2015 and that two separate public hearings on the document would take place on March 18, 2015 at 1:00 PM and at 6:00 PM at the MVPC office at 160 Main Street in Haverhill, MA.  The MVMPO will summarize comments that are received during the 30-day review and comment period and will include this summary in the Final 2015-2018 TIP.

 

Part A. 4.  Amendment/Adjustment Procedures

            The following amendment/adjustment procedures are hereby adopted to consist of the following:

            Minor adjustments to the TIP do not require formal MPO action and can be made via the administrative action of the Merrimack Valley MPO.  These minor adjustments are limited to:

 

            Major changes continue to require MPO action through the formal amendment process.  Major changes would require a thirty day public review and comment period that includes a public hearing.  These changes include, but are not limited to:


Part A. 5.  High Priority Projects

SAFETEA-LU, contained a number of earmarked transportation projects that are to receive federal funding.  Specific funding amounts were obligated to each of these projects, but no additional funding was included in SAFETEA-LU to complete them.  Consequently, states with these projects must implement them within the annual federal authorization limits established in the legislation.  The Merrimack Valley region contains eleven such projects which are shown below along with their status:

Part A. 6.  Advance Construction

 

Advance Construction is a Federal-aid fund management tool, which as described by the Federal Highway Administration website:

 “…allows states to begin a project even in the absence of sufficient Federal-aid obligation authority to cover the Federal share of project costs. It is codified in Title 23, Section 115. Advance construction eliminates the need to set aside full obligational authority before starting projects…At some future date when the state does have sufficient obligational authority, it may convert an advance-constructed project to a Federal-aid project by obligating the permissible share of its Federal-aid funds and receiving subsequent reimbursements.”

In other words, the state pays for the project with non-Federal-aid funds to begin with and can later seek reimbursement of the Federal share of the funding category’s project cost by obligating Federal-aid funding in future years.

 

Projects must meet the following criteria before they can be designated to use the Advanced Construction (AC) funding mechanism:

1.    The project’s estimated Federal participating cost exceeds the total regional annual target (i.e. sum of HSIP, CMAQ, TAP and Non HSIP/CMAQ/TAP), and

2.    Construction, based on an engineering review of the project, will take place during all the years for which federal funding is programmed. 

 

The following projects are programmed in the FFY 2015-2018 TIP using this Advance Construction (AC) method:

 

Amesbury – Reconstruction of Elm Street

Amesbury/Newburyport - Reconstruct I-95 over the Merrimack River (Whittier Bridge)

Groveland – Rehabilitation of Route 97 (School Street & Salem Street)

Methuen – Interchange Reconstruction on I-93 at Route 110/113 Rotary

Transit Projects

 

            Projects from the following Federal-aid (SAFETEA-LU and/or MAP-21 as noted) and non-Federal-aid funding categories are shown in the FFY 2015-2018 TIP.

 

Section 5307 (SECT-07) (Capital and Planning) (SAFETEA-LU continued in MAP-21) - funds routine capital projects and planning assistance in urban areas.  This is an urban formula grant program for MVRTA Preventative Maintenance and ADA costs.

 

            Funding:  Federal - 80%, State - 20% (Bond Issue Funds) (capital and planning expenses)

 

State funding for the MVRTA's operating budget is provided through an agreement with the Transit Division of MassDOT.  Local funds are derived from community assessments based on the number of route miles and special services operated within each community.

 

The Merrimack Valley Planning Commission will provide the 20% match for the planning activities it will conduct for the Merrimack Valley Regional Transit Authority under its Section 5307 transit planning contract with the Authority.

 

Section 5309 ((SECT-9) (SAFETEA-LU replaced in MAP-21 with Section 5339)) - funds capital projects in urban areas which can be characterized as major capital investments in public transportation equipment and facilities.  This is a discretionary grant program.
