This report constitutes an amendment to the regional transportation plan prepared by the(OKI) for the Cincinnati metropolitan area. The OKI 2040 Regional Transportation Plan “Moving the Region Forward” (the Plan) was updated and adopted by the OKI Board of Directors on June 9, 2016. The first amendment to the Plan occurred in October 2016.
Periodically, as needs and conditions change, it becomes necessary to modify the Plan. This amendment is undertaken to address the adoption of the new OKI FY2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The FY 2018-2021 TIP involves additions and changes to six projects, which, due to their scope and regional significance, trigger the need for this amendment, a new regional emissions analysis, and a new finding of conformity.
The above project addition and changes are a result of the adoption of the OKI FY2018-2021 TIP. Five projects (6-352, 77889, 82288, 83723, and 104667) are already in the existing TIP, however the proposed changes to funding and timing will move the date open to traffic beyond the original 2020 analysis year. The remaining project (103753) is a new project being added to the MTP and TIP.
