Yesterday, SCAG’s Executive/Administration Committee approved release of two updated transportation plans for a 30-day public review and comment period, which will run from July 10 through Aug. 8

In partnership with state and local agencies, SCAG has developed a Draft 2019 Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP), which includes a comprehensive list of transportation investment priorities in the SCAG region. It emphasizes transportation system operations and maintenance, and reflects how the region is making progress on the transportation policies and goals of the 2016-2040 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (2016 RTP/SCS). SCAG staff concurrently developed a Draft Amendment #3 to the 2016–2040 RTP/SCS to reflect additions and changes the 2019 FTIP makes to some long-range transportation projects.

Developed in a bottom-up process using submissions from local transportation agencies, the 2019 FTIP includes over 2,000 projects for the region, including roads and bridges, transit and rail, active transportation, safety and maintenance, totaling nearly $34.6 billion over a six-year period. Implementing the projects in the 2019 FTIP will help the region reduce travel time for all automobile trips by 820,000 hours per day, improve air quality by reducing nitrogen oxides by 87 tons per day, and meet the state’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction target in 2020. In addition to expanding our multimodal system and improving public health, these projects will benefit the region and the local economy with an estimated 91,400 direct jobs created each year over the six-year period.

Two public hearings will be held during the review period, on July 17 and July 26 at SCAG’s Los Angeles office. Interested parties may also participate in the public hearings via web browser or by video conference at one of SCAG’s regional offices located in the counties of Imperial, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura.
