STIP Amendment-Potential Stimulus Projects
The House of Representatives passed an economic stimulus bill for transportation with a very aggressive time line for shovel ready projects. Shovel ready projects must be listed in the STIP to be eligible for stimulus funds. DOT&PF is releasing a STIP amendment listing potential economic stimulus projects with a comment deadline of Feb 1, 2010 (available at http://www.dot.state.ak.us/stwdplng/cip_stip/index.shtml).
DOT&PF requests that communities and tribes propose local projects by December 31, 2009. Community and tribal proposals will be considered for inclusion in a second economic stimulus amendment to the STIP.
