On July 9, 2018, SCAG’s Executive/Administration Committee approved the release of the Draft 2016 RTP/SCS Amendment #3, which serves as a consistency amendment to the 2019 Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) allowing for changes to long range RTP/SCS projects, in addition to FTIP state highway and transit projects. For a full listing of all FTIP projects including local highway projects please see the link below. The purpose of the amendment is to allow for project sponsors to update regionally significant transportation projects currently in the 2016 RTP/SCS Project List. Since the Plan’s adoption, some of these projects have experienced technical changes that are time-sensitive. In addition, county transportation commissions (CTCs) have also identified new project priorities in addition to projects that are no longer priorities.
