Each of the three Transportation Planning Organizations (TPOs) staffed by the West Florida Regional Planning Council (Florida-Alabama, Okaloosa-Walton and Bay County) are tasked with developing annual Project Priorities. Project Priorities are approved in September each year and are due to the State Departments of Transportation by October 1st. The adopted Project Priorities are then used by the State Departments of Transportation to develop a five-year Work Program. This five-year Work Program is then used by the TPOs to develop a five-year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP is adopted by the TPOs at their June meetings each year. For full details on the process that was used by three TPOs this year for the FY 2016-2020 Project Priorities, the top ten priorities for the Non-Strategic Intermodal System (SIS) capacity projects, and a link where the entire project priorities document can be downloaded including the SIS and Non-SIS Project Priorities, click here.
