On April 7, 2016, SCAG’s Regional Council adopted the 2016 RTP/SCS, a plan that represents the vision for Southern California’s future, including policies, strategies, and projects for advancing the region’s mobility, economy and sustainability through 2040. A major component of the 2016 RTP/SCS is a Project List containing thousands of individual transportation projects that aim to improve the region’s mobility and air quality and revitalize our economy. Since its adoption, some of these projects have experienced technical changes. In addition, county transportation commissions (CTCs) have also reassessed project priorities. An amendment to the 2016 RTP/SCS and the 2017 Federal Transportation Investment Program (FTIP) is needed in order to allow these projects to move forward in a timely manner.
SCAG hosted a public hearing regarding the amendment on Jan. 18.
SCAG anticipates that its Regional Council will consider adopting the Draft 2016 RTP/SCS Amendment #1 at its April 6, 2017 meeting. Questions about the Draft 2016 RTP/SCS Amendment #1 can be directed to
