The Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) is a federally mandated four year program of all surface transportation projects that will receive federal funding or are subject to a federally required action. The FTIP is a comprehensive listing of such transportation projects proposed over a six-year period. As the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the region, SCAG is responsible for developing the FTIP for submittal to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the federal funding agencies. The FTIP for the SCAG region is developed in partnership between the six county transportation commissions (CTCs) of Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura, as well as Caltrans Districts 7, 8, 11, 12 and Headquarters. This listing identifies specific funding sources and fund amounts for each project. It is prioritized to implement the region’s overall strategy for providing mobility and improving both the efficiency and safety of the transportation system, while supporting efforts to attain federal and state air quality standards for the region by reducing transportation related air pollution. Projects in the FTIP include highway improvements, transit, rail and bus facilities, high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, high occupancy toll (HOT) lanes, signal synchronization, intersection improvements, freeway ramps, non-motorized projects, bicycle, and pedestrian.

The FTIP must include all federally funded transportation projects in the region, as well as all regionally significant transportation projects for which approval from federal funding agencies is required, regardless of funding source. The projects in the FTIP have been found to be consistent with SCAG’s approved Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS).
