Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP)

Purpose

Every two years, San Luis Obispo Council of Governments (SLOCOG) is responsible for developing and adopting a Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) -- a five-year program for planned transportation projects.  The program includes a listing of recommended capital outlays for transportation improvements, including new facilities, rehabilitation, and operational improvements using Regional Improvement Program funds available to the San Luis Obispo region.  The RTIP is one of two programming documents for development of the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), the other document being the Interregional Transportation Improvement Program developed by Caltrans

On October 4, 2017, SLOCOG issued a Draft 2018 RTIP and Staff Report outlining priorities for STIP fund use.
