About

Connecticut Public Act 13-239 was signed into Law in June 2013, directing the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) to create a state funded Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program (LOTCIP). LOTCIP was established to provide municipalities with a funding source and to supplant federal funds offering opportunities for improved project delivery. The program provides State funds to municipal governments through Council of Governments (COG’s)for transportation projects of regional significance, including reconstruction, pavement rehabilitation, sidewalk, bridge, intersection improvement and multi-use trail projects. CTDOT subsequently developed 2013 LOTCIP program guidelines which established the program responsibilities for municipalities, planning regions, and CTDOT.  The State allocated between $45 million and $74 million annually for LOTCIP in fiscal years 2014-2017.  An additional $62 and $64 million respectively was budgeted statewide for fiscal years 2018 and 2019.  CRCOG’s portion of allocated funds totaled approximately $101 million.

Request for Proposals: 2022 LOTCIP Solicitation

The Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) is inviting municipalities to submit proposals for Transportation Improvement Projects for funding under the Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program (LOTCIP). Please visit LOTCIP RFP page for information.

Current LOTCIP Projects

LOTCIP projects are subject to a competitive selection process prior to being advanced. Through a collaborative, transparent process projects are numerically rated on a pre-determined criteria ranging from structural improvement and traffic volume to an environmental and complete street components. A project’s regional significance also factors into the criteria. CRCOG approved $10.9 M in Bridge Projects in 2017 and $27.4 M in Transportation Projects in 2018 for potential advancement into the LOTCIP Design Phase.

Consultants Selected for the LOTCIP Program Assistance (on-call services)

CRCOG has selected the on-call firms listed below, with contact information, to assist municipalities with LOTCIP tasks.  Although municipalities are not mandated to contract with them, these are the firms that, through a selection process, have demonstrated their technical expertise and knowledge of the LOTCIP program.  Also, CRCOG has coordinated with these firms in efforts to standardize their fee schedules in accordance with State LOTCIP requirements.  The Fee Schedules will be made available to CRCOG municipalities upon request (please contact Roger Krahn).  It is required that these fee schedules apply to all LOTCIP on-call related work (including for estimating lump-sum fees and upset limits).

The firms were chosen through CRCOG’s competitive qualifications based selection (QBS) process and therefore are expected to satisfy the selection requirements of its member municipalities.  The selected consultants are scheduled to remain on each list for 24 or 36 months beginning June 1, 2022 and ending May 31, 2024/2025.
