The Traverse Transportation Initiative Coordinating Initiative (TTCI) is established to provide coordinated leadership and direction for the development and conduct of a continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive transportation planning process in the Traverse City Urbanized Area. As a program of Networks Northwest, TTCI shall constitute the forum for cooperative transportation decision-making by principal elected officials of general purpose local governments and representatives of transportation based agencies to develop Traverse City Urbanized Area multi-modal transportation plans and programs. This includes studying how existing east/west corridors throughout this region affect transportation and economic development. In an effort to address the challenges and complexities for improving East/West corridor mobility, the Policy Board instructed staff and the Technical Committee to look at all real and potential projects, which includes providing an updated scope of work for constructing another east/west connection over the Boardman River. The following information is based on estimates only as provided by State and Local transportation agencies with regards to connecting Hammond Rd. and Hartman Rd. via an all-season standard two lane bridge.
