GET TO KNOW YOUR STRATEGIC TRANSPORTATION PROJECT PRIORITIZATION PROCESS (AKA: SPOT 6.0)
STRATEGIC PRIORITIZATION Office OF TRANSPORTATION (SPOT)
The Strategic Prioritization Process is a data-driven, transparent method for prioritizing transportation projects and is used to develop the State Transportation Improvement Program/ Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program(STIP/MTIP), which identify the projects that will be funded during a 10-year period. Prioritization scores all roadway, public transportation, bicycle & pedestrian, rail, ferry, and aviation projects based upon approved criteria.
- A call for non-roadway projects (bike/ped, transit, and aviation) from local municipalities and transportation agencies (June – August 2019)
- Candidate roadway projects are gathered from the MPO’s approved Transportation Improvement Plan and Metropolitan Transportation Plan, and along with the non-roadway projects, a proposed list is then recommended to the Executive Board for public release in late 2019.
- A public hearing and consideration of the final project list is likely to occur at the Executive Board Meeting in November.
- The MPO submits the projects to SPOT 6 in December.
