Annual Call for Projects Now Open
Contact: Georganna Gillette
Each year, the Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization (SCTPO) issues a “Call for Projects” to provide local governments the opportunity to submit projects for consideration into the subsequent year’s Work Program and Transportation Improvement Program. This year, the SCTPO will be accepting transportation project applications from February 9 to April 13, 2015.
Applications are used by the SCTPO to qualify and prioritize proposed transportation-related projects for implementation using federal and state transportation funding. A revised Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Project Information Application must be filled out for all new projects. Applications do not need to be submitted for projects already on the adopted project priority list. Local governments that wish to apply are asked to ensure that the application includes a scope of work, tentative schedule and cost estimate for the requested phase of work. This information is mandatory before FDOT can program projects with available State and Federal funding.
The deadline for submittal of all project applications is 5:00 pm on Monday, April 13, 2015.
The SCTPO is accepting applications in the following categories:
- Strategic Intermodal System (SIS) Roadway Projects
- Other SIS Modes to include Aviation, Seaports, Spaceport and Rail
- Regionally Significant Non-SIS Roadway Projects (Capacity, Widening and Multimodal)
- Transportation System Management and Operations (TSM&O)(ATMS)
- Intersection Improvements
