Public Comment Period Now Open for 2023-26 TIP

The Harrisburg Area Transportation Study (HATS) will hold a public review and comment period for the 2023-26 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) between now and June 2.

The TIP is a comprehensive listing of all federal and state-funded transportation improvement projects in Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry counties over the next four years. Projects are chosen that will improve our transportation system’s overall safety, reliability, traffic flow and security at the regional, county and municipal level.

The review and comment period also includes the Air Quality Conformity Determination, which shows that proposed projects will not adversely impact the region’s air quality.

Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (TCRPC), which administers HATS, will hold three public meetings to provide an overview, answer questions and solicit comments on the TIP:

An in-person meeting will be held Wed., May 11 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Strawberry Square Atrium in Harrisburg.

Virtual public meetings are scheduled for Tue., May 17 from 12 to 1 p.m. (register here) and Thu., May 19 from 6 to 7 p.m. (register here).

More information on the public meetings can be found on the TCRPC Calendar. For an overview of the TIP process and projects, please visit our StoryMap. Additional information, including project maps, an Environmental Justice analysis and the Air Quality Conformity Determination Report, can be found on our TIP page.

Public comments or questions may be submitted in writing to: Lauren Weaver, TCRPC, 112 Market St, 2nd Floor, Harrisburg PA, 17101, or by emailing
