Welcome to your online information source for transportation planning in the Burlington-Graham metropolitan area. Our office is located in the City of Burlington Department of Transportation. Look for updates and additional features each month.



The Program of Projects (POP) is the list of projects programmed in the Burlington Graham Metropolitan Planning Organization’s - Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP) proposed by the Link Transit System to be funded from the area’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5307 during the current and future federal fiscal year(s). In some cases, the POP also includes flexible federal highway funds, such as Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ).

The Burlington Graham MPO Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) process is used to satisfy the public participation process of the Program of Projects (POP) that is required in U.S.C. Section 5307. The POP as presented is the proposed Program of Projects and will also be the final Program of Projects unless amended.

Public notice of public involvement activities and time established for public review and comments on the MTIP will satisfy the POP requirements, as defined by FTA. The information and project listing will also be available at the BGMPO office located at 234 East Summit Avenue, Burlington, NC 27215. All comments should be submitted in writing by January 15, 2020 to the BGMPO office.
