The Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Council of Governments (CWCOG) invites the public to comment on one project submitted by the City of Kelso for the January 2022 Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP) Amendment. The City of Kelso requests approval for the Hazel Street Railroad Grade Separation project to be added to the 2022-2025 MTIP. This project was recently awarded just over $4.2 million of Highway Safety Improvement Program (Section 130) funding.
The MTIP is a four-year program of transportation projects with secured funding ready for implementation. Projects on the MTIP utilize federal funding, are considered regionally significant, or both. The MTIP also identifies projects for inclusion on the Washington Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
The CWCOG is a multi-purpose association of governments that delivers a diverse array of federal, state, and local programs while fulfilling its primary function as a regional planning organization.
