HAWAII DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
DISCUSSION ON STATE HIGHWAY AND COUNTY ROAD CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM PROJECTS
Notice is hereby given that the HAWAII DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (HDOT) will be holding its second and final round of virtual public informational meetings to discuss and solicit comments on the DRAFT STATEWIDE TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM (STIP) for FEDERAL FISCAL YEARS 2022 – 2025 (+2).
The STIP is a four-year programming implementation document that identifies STATE and COUNTY transportation projects, statewide, to be funded, in part, with Federal Highway and Transit funds. HDOT is responsible for the development of the STIP programs for the islands of Hawaii and Kauai, and the islands of Molokai and Lanai. Project information for one project on Molokai can be found on our STIP website (https://highways.hidot.hawaii.gov/stories/s/STIP-Home/63ng-czz7/).
STIP projects on the islands of Oahu and Maui are programmed, in cooperation with, and through the Oahu Metropolitan Planning Organization (Oahu MPO) and Maui Metropolitan Planning Organization (Maui MPO) Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) processes. Once the Oahu and Maui TIPs are approved, they are added to the STIP without change. For more information and to get involved in the development of the new TIP please see the Oahu TIP (http://www.oahumpo.org/plans-and-programs/transportation-improvement-program-tip) and Maui TIP (https://mauimpo.org/transportation-improvement-program-tip) websites.
HDOT concluded its first round of virtual meetings in May 2021, which shared the STIP development process, discussed the fiscally unconstrained FFY 2022-2025 (+2) STIP, and solicited public input. Since then, HDOT has prioritized and fiscally constrained the STIP after evaluating technical and statewide priorities, fiscal requirements, and public input. HDOT will be holding its last round of meetings to share the proposed fiscally constrained FFY 2022-2025 (+2) STIP that will be submitted to Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for approval.
The virtual public informational meeting schedules for Hawaii island and Kauai are:
Hawaii island meeting #1 – Thursday, July 29, 2021 at 6:30 PM
Kauai meeting – Monday, August 2, 2021 at 6:30 PM
