Public comments sought on state transportation plans


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

The public is invited to comment on the New Mexico Department of Transportation’s first 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 STIP contains proposed road and bridge projects and is required under the federal legislation. Projects on the list are on federal and state highways, which are roads with I, U.S. or NM designations.

The NMDOT has posted the 2018-2023 STIP amendment on the internet, dot.state.nm.us. Comments will be taken until Dec. 19.

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 local funds.
