In preparation for the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) public comment period for the Draft FY2023 Transportation Improvement Project (TIP) for Pennsylvania, members of the Circuit Trails Coalition have gathered information on the amount of funding currently proposed to be allocated for trail, bicycle and pedestrian projects in the Pennsylvania counties that fall within the DVRPC region. Furthermore, research was conducted to determine which additional trail projects should be programmed into the FY2023 TIP for Pennsylvania. Once a project has been programmed into the TIP, it is prioritized to receive federal investment, which can fast-track its development.
