    Based on comments received at the 4/20/22 Planning Committee meeting CDTC staff has developed a fourth proposed programming scenario that incorporates all projects that were proposed to be funded in all three of the previously presented scenarios.

    Please note that the fourth proposed programming scenario represents the following:

    • Funding of the CDTA BRT Set-aside and NYSDOT Multi-Site Program projects as approved on 4/20/22
    • Funding all projects that were included on all 3 proposed scenarios from the 4/20/22 Planning Committee meeting (NYSDOT-Proposed scenario, CDTC Evaluation-based scenario, and CDTC Balanced scenario
    • Candidate project factsheets and summary tables presented at the April 20th meeting are still current, along with information relating to the NYSDOT and CDTA Multi-Site Projects and Programs. Please refer to the April 20th meeting page to access these documents.
    • In response to the Planning Committee’s question regarding local and state funding programmed during the last TIP update (2019-2024 TIP), CDTC prepared this Programmed Projects Summary document.
    • At the August 4th, 2021 Planning Committee meeting, the committee agreed to show a table of bonus points for bridge projects proposed by NYSDOT as an appendix to the TIP. The proposed bonus points are summarized in this table of bonus points for bridge projects.
