(Washington, DC) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will hold two public meetings to present for public feedback the transportation projects included in the Fiscal Years 2015 to 2021 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The STIP is a statewide prioritized funding program of transportation projects covering a six-year period that is consistent with the long-range statewide transportation plan, also known as moveDC.

The STIP includes those projects with federal funding and/or regional significance, but it does not include individual projects with 100 percent local funding to address local transportation needs (these are included in the District’s Capital Budget process). At the meetings, DDOT will present the Draft FY 2015 to 2021 STIP Project List, which includes information on the type of project, project funding, and the estimated project schedule. In addition, DDOT will provide an overview of the STIP and how it was developed. The Draft FY 2015 to 2021 Project List is located on DDOT’s website here: http://ddot.dc.gov/page/state-transportation-improvement-program.

The same information will be presented at both meetings. The public is invited to participate in one of the following meetings:

When: December 2, 2014, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Where: Petworth Neighborhood Library
4200 Kansas Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20011
When: December 3, 2014, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Where: Department of Employment Services
4058 Minnesota Avenue, NE
Washington, DC 20019
