SANTA FE – The public is invited to comment on the New Mexico Department of Transportation’s implementation of the 2014-2017 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP.)
The program will serve as the new four year plan for the state’s federal aid highway program.
The STIP contains proposed road and bridge projects and is required by federal regulation. Projects on the list are on federal and state highways (roads with I, U.S. or NM designations.)
The NMDOT has posted the 2014-2017 STIP on the internet asking for public comment until July 18, 2013. In addition, the NMDOT will be soliciting final public comment in conjunction with the State Transportation Commission’s meeting Thursday, July 18, 2013 in Angel Fire.
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 document is posted on the NMDOT website at http://dot.state.nm.us/. The NMDOT STIP Coordinator will take comments via email at Rebecca.Maes@state.nm.us.
