Regional Capacity Projects List and Approval Process

Regional Transportation Plan 2018

Larger scale regional investments planned through 2040 are included in the Regional Transportation Plan on the “Regional Capacity Projects” list. 

Definition of a regional capacity project

Regional Capacity Projects are those projects adding capacity to the regional system above a pre-determined threshold, and include roadway, transit, bicycle/pedestrian and other project types. Projects meeting this threshold must be approved on the list before proceeding towards funding and implementation. Projects that are below this threshold are considered “programmatic” in the plan and are able to pursue funding and implementation with no further actions.

Project status

As part of the update, projects are requested to be either in the financially constrained plan or in the “Unprogrammed” portion of the plan.
