Washington DOT seeks input on multimodal projects list
The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is seeking public comments through Dec. 20 on a draft of the agency's four-year plan for federally funded multimodal transportation improvement projects.
The projects are part of the 2018-2021 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), a prioritized list of planned multimodal transportation projects in the state. Federally funded projects must be included in the STIP before the Federal Highway Administration or Federal Transit Administration can authorize the expenditure of federal funds, according to a WSDOT press release.
More than 1,400 statewide transportation improvement projects using $3.5 billion in federal funds are included in the 2018-21 STIP.
The projects include state, tribal and local roadway, bridge, safety, bicycle, pedestrian and transit improvements, which would be funded with revenue from federal, state, tribal and local sources.
