Transportation Conformity public comment period opens Friday


Transportation conformity estimates the effect of transportation projects on the region’s future air quality. It addresses air pollution from cars, trucks and other motor vehicles - what we call "on-road mobile sources".
AAMPO is seeking public comment beginning February 14, 2020 through March 15, 2020 on our 2020 Transportation Conformity Document for Bexar County. The proposed documents will be available for public review at alamoareampo.org/airquality/conformity.
If you have any questions, contact Allison Blazosky at (210) 227-8651 or blazosky@alamoareampo.org.
