On April 6, 2017, SCAG’s Regional Council adopted the 2016 RTP/SCS Amendment #1 and the 2017 FTIP Consistency Amendment #17-03, including the associated transportation conformity determination. The Amendment was developed as a response to changes to projects in the 2016 RTP/SCS. The majority of the changes made in the Amendment were minor in nature, and included changes to completion years, as well as minor modifications to project scopes, costs, and/or funding. On May 12, 2017, SCAG received its federal conformity determination letter from the Federal Highway Administration/Federal Transit Administration (FHWA/FTA) indicating that all air quality requirements under this amendment had been met.
SCAG hosted a public hearing regarding Amendment #1 on January 18, 2017.
