Starting Monday, March 30 through April 12, 2020, the public is invited to view and comment on OVRDC’s Regional Transportation Improvement Plan (RTIP). The RTIP plan will help inform the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Statewide Improvement Program (STIP) and outline all the upcoming projects slated for development between the fiscal year 2021 – 2024. For maximum regional coordination, now is the time to view the draft plan and give your feedback, so regional and state officials can incorporate suggestions from local stakeholders.
The STIP is Ohio’s four-year transportation planning document. It serves two main purposes. First, it presents the fiscally balanced, multimodal transportation program for the state of Ohio which includes both federal and state-funded projects scheduled for some phase of implementation within the four-year period. Second, it serves as the reference document required by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for use in approving federal funds for transportation projects in Ohio. The STIP is the statewide plan. The RTIP is the regional plan.
