BCAG is responsible for preparing, adopting and submitting a Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) to Caltrans, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The FTIP is a programming document that identifies all regionally significant transportation projects and programs for Butte County that will be funded by federal, state, and local funding sources within the short-term horizon. Projects identified in the FTIP include those for:
  • streets and roads
  • highways
  • transit
  • safety
  • bridge reconstruction
  • enhancements
  • other programs that receive federal dollars or require some type of federal approval
All FTIP material and amendments are developed in consultation with the appropriate local, state, federal agencies, the public, the BCAG Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) and BCAG Board, as required.  Comments or questions regarding the FTIP or any other BCAG planning or programming subject can be directed to Ivan Garcia, BCAG Programming Manager by email at igarcia@bcag.org or by phone at the BCAG offices at 530-809-4616.

2017 FTIP DEVELOPMENT (May through August 2016)

BCAG is required to prepare a Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) every two years.  The BCAG Board is scheduled to adopt the new 2017 FTIP at the August 25, 2016 Board meeting.

The purpose of the FTIP is to identify all transportation-related projects that require federal funding or other approval by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) or the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The 2017 FTIP will cover the next four fiscal years (FFY 16/17, 17/18, 18/19 and 19/20). The FTIP also identifies all non-federal, regionally significant projects for information and air quality emissions modeling purposes.    The FTIP indicates the area's short-term plan for use of federal dollars and other resources for the maintenance, operation, and improvement of the transportation system and the achievement of federal air quality standards over the next four federal fiscal years. 

Projects in the 2016/17 fiscal year and beyond will likely carry forward into the 2017 FTIP as well as the projects recently adopted in the 2016 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).  The typical funding programs associated with the FTIP include the STIP, State Highways Operations and Protection Program (Caltrans SHOPP), Highway Bridge Program (Local Bridge Program), Federal Transit Administration Programs (Transit), Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Program (CMAQ) and Active Transportation Program (ATP).

A draft 2017 FTIP document including an Air Quality Conformity Analysis and Determination was presented at the July BCAG Transportation Advisory Committee and posted online as well.  All matters concerning the development of the FTIP will be posted at this web page. 

If you or your agency/affiliation is interested in being kept informed and participate in the development of the FTIP or any other planning and programming of projects by BCAG, please contact Mr. Ivan Garica at BCAG directly at igarcia@bcag.org. You can also call for any questions at 530-809-4616

Amendments to the 2017 FTIP

Amendment #02 - Administrative
Amendment #01 - Formal.  Guynn Rd over Lindo Channel Bridge Project (Existing Project).  Bridge No 12C0066, just north of W Lindo Ave. The scope of the project is to replace the existing 1 lane structurally deficient bridge with a new 2 lane bridge. The project is an existing project already identified in the FTIP and has previously been reviewed with the BCAG Transportation Advisory Committee. However, because the project funding has changed from $3.2 million to $5.3 million, the project requires a FTIP Amendment approval by the BCAG Board. This project is 100% federally funded by the Highway Bridge Program (HBP). This amendment does not reflect a change in the design concept and scope of the project or the conformity analysis years as assumed for the regional emissions analysis of the currently conforming RTP and TIP.  This amendment, meets all applicable transportation planning requirements per 23 CFR Part 450 (financial constraint, public involvement and consistency with the RTP).

Annual Obligation Reports

These reports identify each specific project that was obligated during the referenced federal fiscal year.  A federal fiscal year begins on October 1st and ends on September 30th. These reports summarize how much federal transportation funding was invested or "obligated" in Butte County. Projects included are for each of the cities, Butte County, BCAG and Caltrans District 3. All projects are located in Butte County. Questions regarding the report can be directed to Ivan Garcia, BCAG Programming Manager at 530-809-4616 or by email at igarcia@bcag.org.
