Draft 2021 Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) for the San Luis Obispo region

The San Luis Obispo Council of Governments (SLOCOG) will hold a Public Hearing via Zoom webinar on December 2, 2020, to receive public testimony on the federally required Draft 2021 Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP).

The FTIP must be financially constrained by fiscal year (FFY21~FFY24), and updated every two years to comply with the requirements of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act federal transportation bill. The Draft 2021 FTIP is being developed to be consistent with SLOCOG’s 2019 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and will be circulated on November 18, 2020 for public review period of 30 days. The program is available at (www.slocog.org) and hard copy in the SLOCOG office. The final program is scheduled for board review and approval on January 6, 2021.

The 2021 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. Highway and local road projects, public transit, and bicycle and pedestrian projects are included in the FTIP based on programmed and committed federal, state, and local funding over the next four years.

The San Luis Obispo Regional Transit Authority (RTA), the City of San Luis Obispo Transit agency and the South County Transit (SCT) agency rely upon SLOCOG, the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to meet the public participation requirements for the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Program of Projects.
