R.I. Transportation Advisory Committee Meeting for 2027 State Transportation Improvement Program

  • Department of Administration, Conference Room A, 2nd Floor (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

About: The State Planning Council’s Transportation Advisory Committee is accepting comments on the proposed Transportation Conformity Determination Report for the 1997 ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS). Last February, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in South Coast Air Quality Mgmt. District v. EPA held that transportation conformity determinations must be made in areas that were either non-attainment or maintenance for the 1997 ozone NAAQS and attainment for the 2008 ozone NAAQS when the 1997 ozone NAAQS was revoked. These conformity determinations are required in these areas after Feb. 16. The Providence 1997 ozone NAAQS area (all of Rhode Island) was classified as non-attainment at the time of the 1997 ozone NAAQS revocation and was designated attainment for the 2008 ozone NAAQS. Therefore, this conformity determination is being made for the 1997 ozone NAAQS on 2018-2027 State Transportation Improvement Program. Transportation conformity is required to ensure that federally supported transportation activities are consistent with the purpose of a State Implementation Plan. Transportation conformity establishes the framework for improving air quality to protect public health and the environment. The draft Transportation Conformity Determination Report for the 1997 Ozone NAAQS is available online.
