Project Priorities


Schedule: Updated annually

Using the State of the System list of ranked roadway segments as technical guidance, the MPO annually submits to the Florida Department of Transportation a prioritized list of projects for implementation in Manatee and Sarasota Counties. These priorities are used by FDOT to program State and Federal transportation funds. Programming commitments made by FDOT are included in its Five-Year Work Program and the MPO’s Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Projects on the Priority List come from three primary sources: local government requests, citizens and the State of the System Report. The development of a Priority List is the first step in the process of implementing transportation improvement projects.
