Regional Transportation Improvement Program
Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP)
The Inyo County LTC is responsible for the preparation of the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP), in collaboration with Caltrans, and submitted for adoption by the California Transportation Commission (CTC). Inyo County LTC submits its RTIP to the CTC for potential inclusion in the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The RTIP, at its core, specifies project cost amounts by project components and the fiscal year in which funds are available.
The current structure of the STIP was initiated by SB 45 in 1997. The STIP is constrained by the amount of funds estimated to be available for the STIP period in the fund estimate, which is developed by Caltrans and adopted by the Commission every other odd year. The amount available for the STIP is then constrained by formulas for regional and interregional shares per Streets and Highways Code.

The Inyo County LTC approved
its 2018 RTIP (4,229 KB) at a meeting on December 6, 2017
and can be
viewed by clicking on the corresponding link. The funding for the
STIP is more robust than it has been for the last several cycles
because of SB 1.
Effective 2019-20, SB 1 resets the
price based excise tax to 17.3 cents with the provision to adjust it
annually for inflation. This will stabilize the funding for the
State Highway Account that is directed to fund the STIP. The

-The Inyo County Local Transportation Commission (LTC) entered into MOUs in 1998 and 2001 for several projects on the US Highway 395/State Route 14 Corridor. The MOU was updated in 2013. The signatories to this MOU are the Inyo County LTC, Mono County LTC, and Kern Council of Governments (Kern COG). These agencies commit to use Regional Improvement Program (RIP) shares programmed in each agency’s RTIP. The purpose of the MOUs is to move forward regionally significant projects that leverage state controlled Interregional Improvement Program funding to be used in the US 395/SR 14 corridor.
