SCAG Includes I-5 in RTP


I-5 Project Included in SCAG Regional Priorities


Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), the largest regional planning agency in the nation, released a draft of its 2008 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) in December. HOV and truck lane improvements “on Route 5 from SR 14 to Parker Road” are included at a project cost of $507 million.
The project list is divided into three sections. The Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP), which includes the I-5 Project, forms the foundation of the RTP investment strategy.  Second, the RTIP represents the first six years of already-committed funding.  
The RTP contains additional financially constrained (funded) projects beyond the RTIP.
Third, the Strategic Plan lists unconstrained examples of projects the region would pursue given additional funding and commitment.
