Project Priorities

Contact: Laura Carter or Sarah Kraum

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.

Draft FY 21 List of Project Priorities

The FY 21 List of Project Priorities will be presented to the SCTPO Governing Board in July 2020 for adoption.

Every year, the Space Coast TPO holds a call for projects. This solicitation to local agencies offers the opportunity for new projects to be submitted for consideration 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.

Call for Projects Directions and Information


Each project submitted will be scored and ranked as follows.

  1. Quantitative Score (0-100) – Based upon the approved project ranking criteria.
  2. Qualitative Score (0-15) – Based upon a consensus recommendation of the Transportation Subcommittee
  3. Discretionary – Committees and Board to move a project in ranking based on a consensus recommendation with Board having ultimate approval
