Notice For Public Comments Statewide Transportation Improvement Program Revision No. 2 Fiscal Year 2015 To 2018 (+2)

Posted on Jun 5, 2015 in Highways News, Main, News

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) is providing an opportunity for the public to submit comments on the proposed Statewide Transportation Improvements Program (STIP) Revision #2 to the Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2015 to 2018 (+2). The STIP document identifies projects that are to be programmed for Federal Highway or Transit funding. Revision #2 is the last scheduled Major Revision for the 2015 federal fiscal year (ending September 2015).

The primary purpose of this revision is to address needed changes to FHWA funded projects due to shifts in project schedules, priorities and cost estimate increases or decreases that occurred through the project development process. Other scheduling changes or funding restructuring were also necessary to fiscally balance the aforementioned changes.

Proposed STIP Revision #2, new project information and a list of explanations of the changes reflected in this revision can be found on our DOT STIP website at: http://hidot.hawaii.gov/highways/revisions-for-2015-2018-2-stip/

Changes to the Oahu portion of the STIP are pending and are concurrently being processed as a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) revision by the Oahu Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). Please see more information on the TIP process and TIP Revisions at the Oahu MPO website at: http://www.oahumpo.org/plans-and-programs/transportation-improvement-program-tip/
