Want to Stay Informed About Upcoming Local Program Projects?

The Mid America Regional Council (MARC) TIP is considered the official site for urban (Platte, Clay, Jackson, Cass Counties) LPA projects.  The current TIP can be found on the MARC website at http://www.marc.org/transportation/tip/TIP12-16.htm.


Another good way to stay up to date on local projects in the urban area is to attend or review the minutes of STP, TE/TA, and CMAQ Missouri subcommittee meetings where decisions as to how funds are to be distributed are made.  The MARC website has information on these committees.  The MARC website can be found at www.marc.org.


The MoDOT LPA website main page typically has information on recent statewide funded projects.  For example, the recently announced statewide Safe Routes to School Projects are currently available on the LPA website main page.  The MoDOT LPA website can be found at http://www.modot.org/business/lpa/index.htm.  Additionally, the "Consultant Info" tab of the LPA website has the consultant RFQ advertisements.


Information on LPA projects specific to the rural and urban counties of the KC District and the corresponding KC District contacts can be found on the MoDOT KC District LPA website under the “Track Progress” tab. The KC District website “Track Progress” page is generally updated quarterly and can be found at http://www.modot.org/kansascity/major_projects/Local_Planning_Agency.htm
