On May 7 and 8, 2013, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) will be visiting the Lincoln Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to discuss the metropolitan area transportation planning process and the effectiveness of that process. Discussions will include the Nebraska Department of Roads and StarTran officials.


The FHWA and the FTA conducts an MPO certification review every four years. This review evaluates the effectiveness of the MPO’s transportation planning process and verifies that the MPO is complying with federal regulations.


In addition to the participating public agencies, the FHWA and FTA need to hear from the community. A public input meeting is scheduled for this purpose on the evening of May 7, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. in the County-City Building, Room 113, 555 South 10th Street, Lincoln, Nebraska.


The Lincoln MPO strongly encourages you to attend and to share with the FHWA and the FTA representatives any thoughts you might have regarding the MPO’s transportation planning process.


If you are unable to attend the meeting, please feel free to share any comments with the MPO by contacting the MPO in person at the Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Department, via phone, mailed letter, or email. Please submit all comments prior to the May 7, 2013 public input meeting. If you have questions regarding the public input meeting, please do not hesitate to contact the Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Department.
