Amendments to the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP)

The STIP is the short-range transportation plan or capital improvement program that outlines which transportation projects are to be implemented on the state transportation network over the next six years. Occasionally, amendments must be made to the STIP. This may be due to a variety of factors, including funding changes, changes to the project scope, or a change in priority requested by a TPR or MPO.

As these are candidate projects, inclusion on the lists does not guarantee selection for funding.

STIP Policy Amendments

STIP policy amendments are typically made for regionally significant projects requiring major scope changes or a re-evaulation of a NEPA document. Policy amendments may also be required for projects added or deleted from the first thre years of the STIP or a change in pooled programs (e.g., Bridge or Suface Treatment) as a result of a Transportation Commission action. Policy amendments are intiated in consultation with the affected TPR  and require approval by the Colorado Transportation Commission and FHWA.  For policy amendments in an MPO area, please see TIP amendment process below.

TIP Amendments

Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) amendments are completed by the Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs). Once an MPO has completed its public review process and its respective Board has adopted the amendment, it is forwarded to CDOT for approval and then to FHWA and FTA for concurrence. TIP amendments can be found on the MPO websites linked below:

Denver Regional Council of Governments

Grand Valley MPO

North Front Range MPO

Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments

Pueblo Area Council of Governments


Administrative Amendments

Administrative amendments are typically smaller in scope and do not require approval by the Transportation Commission or FHWA/FTA. The need for an administrative amendment is determined through consultation between CDOT and the affected TPR or MPO. These changes can be tracked on the STIP Summary Report.
