Draft Regional Transportation Improvement Program

The Draft 2015-2020 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) is now available for public review. SCOG is required by federal and state regulations to develop an RTIP for both SCOG and Skagit-Island RTPO which spans at least four years and is updated at least every two years. The RTIP is a compilation of projects from the various federal, state, and local funding programs for all transportation agencies in Skagit and Island counties. Projects included in the program will implement the long range transportation and transit plans for the region, help meet the short-range needs of the area, and provide for the maintenance of the existing transportation system.

The primary purpose of the RTIP is to identify and document federally funded and/or regionally significant projects to be included in the Washington State Department of Transportation’s (WSDOT) Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
