Sheboygan Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO)
Commission staff presented additional information regarding the 2016 annual report on transportation system performance indicators to members of the Sheboygan MPO Technical and Policy Advisory Committees at their joint meeting in late January. This information included pavement rating maps, as well as data on demand for two intercity bus services that travel through the metropolitan planning area. Commission staff also discussed comparisons of several performance indicators across six small MPOs in Wisconsin at this meeting.   

The Sheboygan MPO Technical and Policy Advisory Committees recommended approval of several minor amendments to the 2017 - 2020 Sheboygan Metropolitan Planning Area Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) at their joint meeting in late January. The Commission's Executive Committee approved these amendments at its meeting in late January, and the approved amendments have been submitted to pertinent state and federal agencies. Some of the amendments involve acquisition of several replacement vehicles for elderly and disabled transportation in 2017, while other amendments involve cost changes to one bicycle and pedestrian transportation project and to two street and highway improvement projects.

Please contact Jeff Agee-Aguayo for additional information.
