Informing regional decisions on transportation needs. 

Why 

To ensure the NVCOG allocates transportation resources where they are most needed and merited, the TTAC reviews and offers an opinion on proposed transportation infrastructure before they are presented to the Board of Directors for action. 

Additionally, the TTAC provides a forum for the region’s transportation and public works professionals to discuss issues of mutual concern, seek advice from peers  and be informed about transportation issues and programs. 

What 

The TTAC comprises representatives from the region’s municipalities, appointed for their familiarity identifying transportation needs and the transportation planning programs and processes offered by the Connecticut Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration. 

Specific responsibilities include: 

  1. Receive and review pre-applications for transportation improvement projects under the state-funded Local Transportation Improvement Program (LOTCIP).
  2. Review proposed and requested amendments to the Transportation Improvement Programs for the Central Naugatuck Valley Region MPO and the Greater Bridgeport and Valley MPO.
  3. Review the draft Transportation Improvement Programs for the Central Naugatuck Valley Region MPO and the Greater Bridgeport and Valley MPO.
  4. Review the draft transportation plans for the Central Naugatuck Valley Region MPO and the Valley portion of the Greater Bridgeport and Valley MPO.
  5. Review the results of the regional emissions analyses and make a recommendation to the NVCOG Board regarding endorsement of the Air Quality Conformity Determinations.
  6. Review the draft Unified Planning Work Programs for the Central Naugatuck Valley Region MPO and the Valley portion of the Greater Bridgeport and Valley MPO.
