Upcoming Public Hearings

TIP Amendment 445507-1: The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is proposing an amendment to the FY 2020/21 – 2024/25 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). This amendment is for the addition of wrong-way driver vehicle detection equipment on exit ramps in various locations along I-175, I-275, and I-375. This is a new project for which the total cost is $1,141,400. This project will not affect any current projects in the FY 2020/21-2024/25 TIP.

Fall Update of the TIP: Each year in the Fall, Forward Pinellas updates its Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) to include the recently adopted transportation work programs of the local governments.  Although metropolitan planning organizations are only required to provide information on federal- and state-funded transportation projects, Forward Pinellas has historically included the transportation projects in adopted local government capital improvement programs through its annual fall update. This provides citizens, businesses and other public agencies that reference the TIP with a more comprehensive report of scheduled transportation projects located throughout Pinellas County.
