Prioritization 6.0 (SPOT 6)
SPOT 6 refers to the process that guides the development of a 2023-2032 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). It is anticipated to begin in late 2019.
Part One: Submittal of Candidate Projects
MPOs across the state start their work by prioritizing the projects to be submitted to the SPOT 6 process. This includes:
- A call for non-roadway projects (bike/ped, transit, and aviation) from local municipalities and transportation agencies in the fall and winter of 2019-2020. The deadline for candidate projects for CAMPO is November 22, 2019.
2. Candidate roadway projects are gathered from the MPO's approved Transportation Improvement Plan and Metropolitan Transportation Plan, and along with the non-roadway projects, a proposed list is then recommended to the Executive Board for public release in December-February 2019.
3. A public hearing and consideration of the final project list is likely to occur at the Executive Board Meeting in March/April 2020.
4. The MPO submits the projects to SPOT 6 in April 2020.
