SANTA FE ― The public is invited to comment on the New Mexico Department of Transportation’s 4th Amendment to the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The program will serve as a four-year plan for the state’s federal aid highway program.
The STIP contains proposed road and bridge projects and is required under the federal legislation. Projects on the list are on federal and state highways (roads with I, U.S. or NM designations).
The NMDOT has posted the 2018-2023 STIP amendment on the internet asking for public comment until Sept. 15, 2018. The STIP is developed by the NMDOT, working in cooperation with state, local and tribal transportation agencies as well as regional planning organizations.
Projects included in the STIP are funded with a combination of federal, state and/or local funds. The amendment is posted on the NMDOT website at https://estip.dot.state.nm.us/. The NMDOT STIP Personnel will take comments via the eSTIP Amendment tab.
