The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is seeking public input as it updates its four-year Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) and revised Public Involvement Procedures (PIP). The 2021-2024 draft STIP covers a $3.865 billion program, listing all federally funded transportation improvements, by federal funding category and by region, which are scheduled to occur over the next four years in Connecticut, including capital and operational improvements to each transportation mode: including highway, bus, rail, and bicycle facilities and amenities. In conjunction with the preparation of the STIP, CTDOT is also required to continually develop its Public Involvement Procedures (PIP). These are the procedures the Department follows to ensure stakeholders are afforded notification and venues to share their concerns or questions.
The STIP and PIP documents will be available for public review and comment from August 24 to October 9, 2020. During this time, CTDOT will be hosting two virtual public information meetings on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, at 1:00 PM and again at 7:00 PM.
The draft STIP and PIP, as well as details on how to attend the virtual public information meetings and make comments on the draft documents, are available at https://www.ct.gov/dot/STIP. You may also view CTDOT’s brochure for information on the documents and opportunities to provide input.
