Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP)

Purpose


Every two years, Shasta Regional Transportation Agency (SRTA) is responsible for developing and adopting a Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) -- a five-year program for planned transportation projects.  The program includes a listing of recommended capital outlays for transportation improvements, including new facilities, rehabilitation, and operational improvements using Regional Improvement Program funds available to the Shasta region.  The RTIP is one of two feed documents for development of the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), the other feed document being the Interregional Transportation Improvement Program developed by Caltrans.  SRTA updated project selection priorities on October 22, 2013.

2020 RTIP
The 2020 RTIP is due to the CTC no later than December 15, 2019, for incorporation into the 2020 STIP in March 2020.  SRTA has been issued, through the Fund Estimate, $3.583 million of new programming capacity for development of the 2020 RTIP, and consulted with Caltrans District 2 staff on July 17, 2019, and the SRTA Technical Advisory Committee on October 7, 2019.  Preliminary programming recommendations were presented to the SRTA Board of Directors on October 22, 2019.

The draft Shasta 2020 RTIP includes the following programming recommendations:  the Sacramento River Trail (Diestelhorst) to Downtown Non-Motorized Improvements ($400,000 - prior year funds); the Downtown to Turtle Bay Non-Motorized Improvements ($1,270,000 - prior year funds); the Interstate 5 North Redding Six-Lane Project ($5,568,000: $1,600,000 prior year funds; and $3,968,000 new funds); and Planning, Programming and Monitoring funding for SRTA ($619,000: $438,000 prior; and $181,000 new).  Proposed funding for the North Redding Six-Lane Project includes $1,107,455 of Highway Infrastructure Program monies.  

A hard copy of the draft RTIP is available for review at SRTA’s office. The RTIP will be considered by the SRTA Board of Directors for adoption on Tuesday, December 10, 2019, at 3:00 PM, at which time a public hearing will be held.  The meeting will be held at the Shasta County Board of Supervisors Chambers, 1450 Court Street, Suite 263, Redding.  Verbal comments may be provided at the hearing, and written comments will be accepted through December 1, 2019.

2018 RTIP
On December 12, 2017, the SRTA Board of Directors adopted the Shasta 2018 RTIP, contributing $17.75 million in regional funds to five projects:  $13.722 million to Phase I of the Interstate 5 Redding to Anderson Six-Lane Project (I-5 RASL=$30.663 million total project cost); $400,000 to the Sacramento River Trail (Diestelhorst) to Downtown Non-Motorized Improvements ($2.638 million total project cost); $1.27 million to the Downtown to Turtle Bay Non-Motorized Improvements ($7.0 million total project cost); $1.6 million to the I-5 North Redding Six Lane environmental and project approval phase ($1.6 million total); and $628,000 of Planning, Programming and Monitoring funding for SRTA for five years.  

On March 21-22, 2018, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) approved the RTIP candidate projects for inclusion into the 2018 State Transportation Improvement Program.  Subsequently, SRTA contributed an additional $5.593 million to the I-5 RASL project in October 2018 when construction bids exceeded initial estimates.
