Corridor MPO Seeks Public Input on Transportation Priorities
Residents of Cedar Rapids, Ely, Fairfax, Hiawatha, Linn County, Marion, Palo, and Robins can weigh in on how the region invests approximately $125 million in transportation over the next 25 years. Input is critical to help Corridor MPO prioritize regional transportation investments.
The Corridor Metropolitan Planning Organization seeks input from the public as they begin the planning process for the next long-range transportation plan to improve the Cedar Rapids Metro. The plan will guide the allocation of approximately $5 million in annual federal funding. The public will be asked to prioritize transportation goals and types of projects they would like to see transportation dollars invested.
The first opportunity for input will be at the Corridor MPO booth at NewBo City Market (1100 3rd St SE) in Cedar Rapids on Saturday, Feb. 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A survey to collect additional feedback will launch at the same time. Those providing input at the booth on Saturday or via the online survey can enter for a chance to win one of three $30 gift cards to NewBo City Market.
Please check the Corridor MPO or for future opportunities to provide input on the Corridor MPO’s Long Range Transportation Plan.
