Comprehensive Transportation Projects
2008 Regional Transportation Improvement Program
SANDAG, as the Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Regional Transportation Planning Agency, is required by state and federal laws to develop and adopt a Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP). The RTIP is a multi-billion dollar, multi-year program of proposed projects for major highway, arterial, transit, and bikeway projects including the TransNet Program of Projects. The RTIP usually covers five fiscal years and incrementally develops the Regional Transportation Plan , the long-range transportation plan for the San Diego region. At its meeting on July 25, 2008, the SANDAG Board adopted the final 2008 RTIP. SANDAG received federal approval on November 17, 2008.
Federal Air Quality Conformity Requirements
Federal regulations also require SANDAG to conduct an air quality conformity analysis of all regionally significant projects that increase the transportation system capacity. All regionally significant capacity increasing transportation projects regardless of funding sources must be included in the RTIP. The 2008 RTIP includes the transportation conformity for both the 2008 RTIP and a re-determination for the 2030 RTP: Pathways for the Future. Additional information on conformity can be found on the Conformity Working Group for Air Quality Web page.
Annual Listing of Obligated Projects
Federal law requires SANDAG to publish an annual listing of projects obligated for federal funds. These projects include highway, transit, major local projects, and pedestrian walkways and bicycle transportation facilities. The federal fiscal year ending in September 2008 (covering the period October 1, 2007 to September 30, 2008) and federal fiscal year ending in September 2009(covering the period October 1, 2008 to September 30, 2009) are available below in PDF format under Downloads. Obligation refers to the federal government's commitment to pay or reimburse the lead agency for the federal share of a project's cost. Obligation does not indicate expenditure or project completion; only that the project has been approved for federal reimbursement. Prior year obligation reports can be found on the 2006 RTIP web page.
2008 RTIP Amendments
Please refer to Chapter 2 of the 2008 RTIP for requirements and types of amendments SANDAG processes. Amendments are scheduled generally on a quarterly basis at the Transportation Committee meetings - please see the Amendment Schedule posted as a download below. Note that agencies are required to have proposed project amendments approved by its governing body before SANDAG takes action. The due dates are final; no late submittals will be accepted. If SANDAG does not have the proper documentation that the projects were approved by its governing body, including a signed resolution, the project(s) will NOT be included in the final amendment approved by the Transportation Committee. A sample resolution that includes all of the requires clauses is also posted below under downloads.
