  • 2017 Transportation Planning Study Solicitation

    CRCOG recently received notification that the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) will be accepting applications from the regions for Transportation Planning Studies.  Each region is allowed to submit two (2) study applications to CTDOT for use of STP-Urban funding.  CRCOG staff recommends competitively selecting and submitting one (1) municipally initiated study (typically a corridor study) and one (1) regional study aiming to address bigger picture system wide improvements.

    To apply for a study, municipalities should complete the Study Screening form and return a signed original to Rob Aloise at CRCOG by 4PM on October 26, 2017.   Please note that under the STP-Urban program, municipalities will be required to provide a 20% non-federal match (CTDOT may split the match 10% state, 10% municipality for studies on state roadways).

    CRCOG staff will provide a summary of the municipally initiated study applications along with a staff recommendation at the November Transportation Committee meeting.  We will also have more of a regional study framework for committee input.  Following our November meeting, CRCOG will forward the top rated proposals (meeting STP-Urban eligibility requirements) to CTDOT for their review and approval.  CTDOT anticipates reviewing corridor study ideas by February 1, 2018 and inviting towns/regions to clear up any questions in the spring of 2018.  Selected corridor studies will be assigned to CTDOT staff during the summer of 2018.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Rob Aloise (raloise@crcog.org) or myself (jcarrier@crcog.org).
