Fiscal Years 2008 Thru 2011 (+2)

The FHWA and FTA jointly approved the 2008-2011 (+2) STIP conditionally for six months, from October 1, 2007 to March 31, 2008, due to planning process issues. During the conditional approval, major changes, that include adding new projects or completely deferring an existing project out of the 2008-2011 (+2) STIP, were not allowed. Minor changes, such as deferrals or advancements of existing projects within the STIP were allowed. However, during this time projects in the conditionally approved STIP were able to seek funding as they became ready.

Since the conditional six-month approval of the 2008-2011 (+2) STIP by FHWA and FTA, the STIP has undergone three revisions. HDOT re-submitted the revised STIP to FHWA and FTA for further approval on March 3, 2008 along with supporting documentation to address and resolve planning process issues. In a letter to HDOT, effective April 14, 2008, FHWA and FTA jointly and fully approved the 2008-2011 (+2) STIP, including the revisions #1, 2 and 3. FHWA and FTA also determined, as stated in the letter, that HDOT has made sufficient progress in addressing the planning process issues aforementioned.

Most current, revised, APPROVED 2008-2011 (+2) STIP, as revised by Revisions #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 & 14 (PDF File 195KB)

Financially Constrained 2008-2011 (+2) STIP (PDF File 174KB)

To meet financial constraint (for FHWA funded projects only), the financially unconstrained STIP was reduced by approximately $200 million worth of projects over the 6-year period. This reduced program was developed with guidance from public comments and coordination between respective county agencies and the DOT.

08-11(+2) STIP Survey Results (including project descriptions)
The purpose of these surveys was to help us get a better feel for the public’s perception of priorities (high, medium, low or delete) for the proposed unconstrained list of 08-11(+2) STIP projects. We used this guidance to help us make more informed decisions when we constrained the new STIP. Thank you to those who took the time to fill them out and send them back to us.
