Regional Transportation Improvement Program

2020 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP)

The RTIP is a program of highway, local road, transit and active transportation projects that a region plans to fund with State and Federal revenue programmed by the California Transportation Commission in the STIP. The RTIP is developed biennially by the regions and is due to the Commission by December 15 of every odd numbered year. The program of projects in the RTIP is a subset of projects in the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), a federally mandated master transportation plan which guides a region’s transportation investments over a 20 to 25-year period. The RTP is based on all reasonably anticipated funding, including federal, state and local sources. Updated every 4 to 5 years, the RTP is developed through an extensive public participation process in the region and reflects the unique mobility, sustainability, and air quality needs of each region.

The Tehama RTIP consists of the pavement, bridge and pedestrian/bicycle projects. The 2020 RTIP totals $16,506,000 in transportation projects: all projects are consistent with the Tehama County RTP. These projects improve safety/operations and facilitate the movement of goods and people in the region. RTIP projects improve the transportation system network within Tehama County as well as the North State Region. Local roads such as 99W are essential to goods movements.
