State to hold more public meetings on transportation projects

dot-logo-department-of-transportation

The Dept. of Transportation will be holding its second round of statewide public informational meetings to discuss the fiscally constrained draft of the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for Fiscal Years 2015-2018 (+2).

The STIP is a four-year plan that identifies state and county transportation projects to be funded, in part, with federal highway and transit funds.

Fiscal constraint of the new STIP was done using technical information from management systems, project schedules and readiness information, and coordination with relevant public agencies and the public.  Survey results gathered from the first round of public meetings will be shared, along with information about next steps.

Meetings for the island of Oahu are still being scheduled by the Oahu Metropolitan Planning Organization. For more information, please visit the OahuMPO website.
