Issue
ISSUE

In November 2017, the Board adopted the 2018 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) for Los Angeles County, which included programming for three widening projects on State Route (SR) 138. On March 21, 2018, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) adopted the 2018 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The 2018 STIP includes the total RTIP funding requested by Metro for the SR 138 segments, but defers the programming of these STIP funds from Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 to FY 2020, and from FY 2020 to FY 2021 due to STIP funding capacity constraints in FY 2019 and FY 2020 (Attachment B). To avoid project delays and potential cost increases, Staff proposes to initiate what is known as the AB 3090 STIP Amendment process to reclassify the three SR 138 STIP projects as AB 3090 repayments through a STIP Amendment. This process would allow (A) Caltrans to initiate the projects with Metro-controlled federal Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBGP) funds and (B) permit Metro to secure the repayment of state funds within the five-year 2018 STIP period.
