County Transportation Coordinating Committee (TCC) was established
by the Board of Chosen Freeholders in 1976 in response to legislation
governing the federally funded Subregional Transportation Planning Program
which calls for direct participation of the general public, citizen
groups, locally elected officials and transportation providers in the
process of making transportation decisions. The TCC also serves as the
official advisory body to the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders
on transportation issues and especially on projects and programs that
are federally funded.
Such programs include
the ongoing federally funded Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)
that is coordinated by the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority
(NJTPA) with the participation of the affected Counties and other subregions,
the New Jersey Department of Transportation, New Jersey Transit and
other regional transportation agencies. This program contains a wide
range of transportation proposals including highway, bridge, intersection,
transit improvements and other programs of both local and regional significance.
The TCC also reviews and provides input to the periodic update of the
County's Transportation Plan and other federally funded projects and
studies. Meetings of the TCC provide a forum for public discussion of
various transportation matters and issues of concern, and a means to
advance these issues for appropriate action.
Membership of the
TCC includes representation from the Board of Chosen Freeholders, the
County's 25 municipalities, the County's State Legislative delegation and congressional representatives, transit
providers, the education and business community, and other State, regional
and County transportation agencies.
Meetings of the
TCC are usually held on the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Middlesex
County Planning Board First Floor Meeting Center at 7:00 PM at 40 Livingston
Avenue, New Brunswick, New Jersey. There are no meetings held in July, August, and December.
