SSMMA seeks public comment on STP-L Call for Projects
SSMMA has released our Draft 2020 Call for Projects (CFP) lists for the Surface Transportation Program (STP-L) on July 7, 2020. The Public Comment period will run from July 7, 2020 to August 4, 2020 5pm CST. Comments and questions can be submitted to the Transportation Planner, Leslie Phemister, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is the proposed Active and Contingency lists for the 2021-2025 SSMMA STP-L Program.
STP Shared Fund The shared fund was established for the purpose of supporting larger-scale regional projects that address regional performance measures and the goals of CMAP’s ON TO 2050. The programming authority distributed to the shared fund is derived from a set-aside of the region’s annual allotment of STP-L funds. Project selection is a region-wide competitive process overseen by the STP Project Selection Committee.
Project eligibility is focused on projects of significant cost and multijurisdictional projects in eight categories that address federal performance measures and priorities of ON TO 2050: road reconstructions, transit station rehabilitation or reconstructions, bridge rehabilitation or reconstructions, highway/rail grade crossing improvements, road expansions, bus speed improvements, corridor-level or small area safety improvements, and truck route improvements. Evaluation criteria are intended to emphasize the desire to bring projects to completion, address needs with cost-effective improvements, and implement planning factors that are an integral part of ON TO 2050, while also considering local preferences at the subregional level.
A call for projects to be implemented with the STP Shared Fund in federal fiscal years 2020-2024 was held from January 15 to March 15, 2019. On October 10, 2019 the CMAP Board and MPO Policy Committee approved the FFY 2020-2024 program of projects. Read more.
