Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP)


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.

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); $1.4 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.

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.  Programming direction from the agency Board of Directors will be sought at its meeting of October 22, 2019.
