Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) Amendment No. 4

The San Luis Obispo Council of Governments (SLOCOG) will hold a Public Hearing on February 2, 2022, to receive public testimony on Amendment No. 4 to the 2021 Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP).  The 2021 FTIP Amendment No. 4 consists of the following change:  

1) State Route 46 Corridor Improvements (Cholame Segment) PPNO 0226J – Convert to four-lane expressway. Increase CON funding by $41.5M from the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for additional construction capital and shift phase to Fiscal Year 2021-22. Overall project total $166M.

The FTIP is the region’s transportation programming document that contains a comprehensive listing of surface transportation projects that receive federal funds, are subject to a federally required action, or are regionally-significant. Highways, streets, and local roads; public transit; and bicycle and pedestrian projects are included in the FTIP based on expected federal, state, and local funding (programmed and committed) over the next four years.  

The San Luis Obispo Regional Transit Authority (RTA), City of San Luis Obispo's Transit Division (SLO Transit), and South County Transit (SoCo Transit) rely upon SLOCOG, as the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the region, to meet the public participation requirements for the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Program of Projects.
