In 2013, the Connecticut state legislature created the Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program or LOTCIP . The new program provides state funds to urbanized planning areas in lieu of the federal transportation funds allocated under the Surface Transportation Program for urbanized areas. The ConnDOT implemented to program and developed guidelines and procedure s for selecting projects. While the LOTCIP provides an alternate funding source for local transportation projects, federal guidelines still require the GBVMPO and ConnCOT to collaborate on project selection and evaluation under the STPB program.
