The Michiana Area Council of Governments (MACOG) has developed a draft state fiscal year (SFY) 2024-28 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 the region’s blueprint for transportation investment over the next 20 years, according to a news release from MACOG. The amendment to this plan adds an added travel lanes project on U.S. 33 from CR 40 to Monroe Street in Elkhart County.

The public is 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 at A review and comment period began Monday, March 27 and extends until April 28. As part of the public participation process, MACOG will offer an open house from 3 to 5 p.m. April 12 at their office, 227 W. Jefferson Blvd., 11th Floor County-City Building, South Bend.

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.
