NATS Policy & Technical Advisory Committee Meeting

Tuesday May 24, 2022 at 1:30 PM

Niles District Library

620 E Main St,

Niles, MI 49120


At the upcoming NATS meeting, we will discuss a new Federal fund buyout program from MDOT. Give an overview of the 2021 road & bridge condition.  There are MDOT project amendments that need committee approval. The main new business will be approval of the 2023 Unified Work Program. This is the listing of the planning activities SWMPC staff will conduct for the NATS area in fiscal year 2023 which begins October 1, 2022. The 2023-2026 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) will be presented. The TIP contains the list of federally funded transportation projects in the NATS Area which were chosen for 2023 through 2026, along with an analysis of their potential impacts.



Because the health and safety of attendees and staff is paramount, SWMPC has implemented the following safety protocols for this meeting:

  • Socially distanced meeting room setup.
  • Tables and surfaces will be wiped down prior to meeting.
  • Hand sanitizer and masks will be available.
