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.

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


STEP 1. Complete the FDOT Project Information Application Form

The FDOT Project Information Application Form provides vital project information that will ultimately be used to scope and process the application.  To complete you will need to be able to amply describe the project, provide the funding needs, and describe the projects location and relevancy.


The SCTPO Project Application was created to provide a scoring methodology based on data that reflects the TPO’s goals identified in its adopted Long Range Transportation Plan. These goals are the foundation used in the creation of the Board’s strategic plan and were developed to ensure the TPO’s adherence to Federal and State requirements, such as performance measures and planning factors.
