Amendment proposed for Statewide Transportation Improvement Program

March 17th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

The West Virginia Department of Transportation (WVDOT) is proposing an amendment to the 2023-2028 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).  
The STIP is a financially constrained document that is required to show planned highway and transit projects which are to utilize federal transportation funds for federal fiscal years 2023-2028. One of the requirements of funding any project with federal transportation funds is that each proposed regionally significant project or major change to program group size undergoes a public review and comment period.  Therefore, additions or deletions to the STIP and certain changes to current projects or groupable programs in the STIP must meet this requirement before federal funds can be obligated.
