ELMIRA CHEMUNG TRANSPORTATION COUNCIL INVITES PUBLIC COMMENT ON DRAFT TRANSPORTATION PLANS: BICYCLE\PEDESTRIAN\TRAIL AND FREIGHT
ELMIRA- The Elmira Chemung Transportation Council is seeking comment from residents and business owners in Chemung County on its draft plans dealing with bicycle\pedestrian\trail needs and projects and a freight study as parts of its Long Range Plan, “Elmira Chemung Transportation Plan 2035: Challenges and Opportunities”. ECTC is responsible for investing federal funds in the region’s transportation system, including roads and bridges, C TRAN service, and sidewalks and trails.
The Bicycle Pedestrian Trail Final Draft Plan and Freight Plan part of the Appendix to the main plan, and are stand-alone plans that will set the issues and projects for these two areas for the next twenty years. When work on the plan began back in May, 2014 ECTC held a series of Community Visioning workshops to find out where people want this region to be in twenty years. The result was an expressed desire for a community that is attractive and accessible, with bicycle facilities, improved sidewalks, and a trail network. The recommended trail network will connect and expand upon the Catharine Valley Trail and Lackawanna Rail Trail, with a map of the trail network.

ECTC releases 2013-2018 Transportation Improvement Program
The Federal transportation laws require that a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), consistent with the ECTC Long Range Plan, be developed. It must contain the capital and non-capital transportation projects proposed for funding under Title 23 (highways) and Title 49 (transit) laws. The TIP represents the choices for the use of Federal transportation funds in the Elmira urbanized area that are presented to the public for their review. It consists of a listing of projects being considered for implementation in the County for a five-year period in each of several Federal-Aid funding categories. Projects that are proposed for inclusion in the TIP are evaluated and implementation priorities are developed based on project needs, local priorities, funding availability, and project readiness for implementation.
