DelDOT: Capital Transportation Program Hearings Set

by Dave on September 3, 2010

Interested persons are encouraged to participate in the development of the state’s six-year Capital Transportation Program (CTP) for Fiscal Years 2012-2017, by attending a public hearing jointly sponsored by the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT), Sussex County, and the Council on Transportation.

DelDOT’s Sussex County public hearing is set for September 16, 2010, from 4-7 p.m. at the DelDOT Georgetown Administration Building, 23697 DuPont Blvd., Georgetown. DelDOT will have project boards on display and representatives will be in attendance to discuss various projects in the work plan.

The CTP hearings provide an opportunity to review current and suggested transportation projects. Also, the public will have a chance to view the reductions to the DelDOT work program as a result of decreased revenues coming into the Transportation Trust Fund. The hearings also include capital investments for DART First State public transit and will be used to satisfy the public involvement requirements of FTA Section 5307. The public hearings, held in all three counties, are an open house format, with a Court Reporter available to take public comment. Interested persons are also encouraged to submit written comments during the public hearing process.

Mandated by 29 Delaware Code, SubSection 8409, the hearings are designed to ensure that the public has ample opportunity to participate in the planning process. The MPOs are composed of representatives from state, county and local governments, and citizen and technical representatives. The Council on Transportation is composed of citizen representatives from every county in the state. Members are appointed by the Governor.

Meeting locations are accessible to persons having disabilities. Any person having special needs or requiring special aid, such as an interpreter for the hearing impaired, is requested to contact DelDOT by phone or mail one week in advance of the planned event. Questions, comments or written material can be submitted to: Office of Public Relations, Department of Transportation, P.O. Box 778, Dover, Delaware, 19903, or call 1-800-652-5600 (in Delaware) or 302-760-2080.
