The List of Project Priorities (LOPP) contains a list of unfunded highway, technology and bicycle and pedestrian projects. The LOPP serves as a bridge document between the Space Coast TPO’s Long Range Transportation Plan and the five-year Transportation Improvement Program.
Once long-term needs are determined by the 20-year long range plan, projects are prioritized and put on the List of Project Priorities, a funding waiting list. When funding becomes available, the project moves to the five-year plan.
The process begins with a call for projects each year. Staff works with members of the Transportation Subcommittee to develop a draft list that builds on the list from the previous year. The draft LOPP then goes through Space Coast TPO’s advisory committees and governing board for comment, review and adoption.
A compilation of all types of priority lists from projects to legislative positions has been compiled into one report to provide a one stop resource document to quickly reference what the latest SCTPO priorities are. The report includes the following priority lists:
- SCTPO Project Priorities (Adopted July 2020; Amended December 2020)
- Transportation Regional Incentive Program (TRIP) Priority List
- MPOAC FDOT District 5 Freight 2020 Project Priority List
- Space Coast Area Transit
- Space Florida
- Port Canaveral
- MPO Alliance Regional Priorities
- SCTPO 2021 Legislative Positions

2021 PROJECT PRIORITIES SCHEDULE
Every year, the Space Coast TPO conducts a call for projects. This solicitation to local agencies offers the opportunity for new projects to be submitted for consideration and to be added to the TPO’s ranked project priorities. The existing list is also reviewed and updated with changes as projects are funded through their various stages from year to year.
