The public is invited to comment on the New Mexico Department of Transportation’s 9th 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 2016-2021 STIP amendment is posted on the NMDOT website at http://dot.state.nm.us/ until June 15, 2017.
In addition, NMDOT will be soliciting public comment in Santa Fe, New Mexico on Thursday, June 15, 2017, at the New Mexico Department of Transportation, located at 1120 Cerrillos Road, Santa Fe, NM. The NMDOT STIP personnel will also take comments via email at Rebecca.Maes@state.nm.us.
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 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/.
