The Michiana Area Council of Governments (MACOG) has developed a draft State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2024-2028 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and an Amendment to the Michiana on the Move: 2045 Transportation Plan, which is currently available for public comment. The TIP includes a listing of transportation projects that are federally funded between SFY 2024 and 2028, including road, transit, bicycle and pedestrian projects for Elkhart, Kosciusko, Marshall, and St. Joseph Counties in Indiana. The Michiana on the Move: 2045 Transportation Plan serves as our region’s blue print for transportation investment over the next twenty years. The Amendment to this Plan adds an Added Travel Lanes project on US 33 from CR 40 to Monroe Street, in Elkhart County.

You are invited to join MACOG’s Public Open House to review the draft TIP and Transportation Plan Amendment to provide comment on the proposed program of projects.

A draft of the proposed Program of Projects and Amendment is available at area public libraries, MACOG’s office, and on MACOG’s website A review and comment period begins on March 27, 2023, and extends until April 28, 2023.

Jefferson Blvd., 11th Floor County-City Building, South Bend, IN 46601).

The MACOG TIP fulfills requirements for the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) public involvement process. The TIP public participation process is used to satisfy the South Bend and Elkhart-Goshen Urbanized Area Section 5307 Program of Projects (POP) requirements.
