AAMPO Considers Amendments to Transportation Improvement Program

Project key number 22226, Bus Barn Capital Set Aside, requires a 30-day comment period and Policy Board approval because it is a new project. The total project cost is $1,018,750 to be used for engineering, design, and construction of a bus barn to ensure continued and improved service. Public comments can be submitted in writing to Dana Nichols at dnichols@ocwcog.org, between April 29 and May 29, 2020.

Project key number 18850, Corvallis to Albany Trail: Scenic Dr – Springhill, requires a 30-day comment period and Policy Board approval because the construction phase is being cancelled from the current STIP and instead delivered in the FY21-24 STIP in FFY22. Public comments can be submitted in writing to Dana Nichols at dnichols@ocwcog.org, between May 7 and June 6, 2020. This amendment will be reviewed and considered for approval at the May 27, 2020 meeting of the AAMPO Policy Board.

Project key number 21185, Corvallis to Albany Trail: Scenic Dr – Springhill, requires a 30-day comment period and Policy Board approval because additional funding is being added to the project. The justification for the additional funds is that not enough funds originally programmed in PE. Need additional funds to cover the cost of railroad design, site diagnostic, and internal design work prior to submitting for railroad review/cost estimate. Not enough funds in RW phase. Need to have RW available in order to minimize delays in schedule for obligating funds. Funds to come from Rail Crossing Program. Moving some money from the Other phase as this phase is to pay the railroad for their work. The money move from Other phase to PE is to pay for the railroad design work, which will be coming out of PE but was not included in the original PE budget. Public comments can be submitted in writing to Dana Nichols at dnichols@ocwcog.org, between May 7 and June 6, 2020.​ This amendment will be reviewed and considered for approval at the May 27, 2020 meeting of the AAMPO Policy Board.

Project key number 22004, Salem Avenue: Cox Creek Bridge (Albany), requires a 30-day comment period and Policy Board approval because the project is being cancelled from the current FY18-21 STIP and instead delivered in the FY21-24 STIP. This PE phase of this project was amended into the FY18-21 TIP by the AAMPO Policy Board at their February Meeting, however changes in delivery timing have pushed this project back. Public comments can be submitted in writing to Dana Nichols at dnichols@ocwcog.org, between May 7 and June 6, 2020.​ This amendment will be reviewed and considered for approval at the May 27, 2020 meeting of the AAMPO Policy Board.
