The second round of meetings to share the proposed fiscally constrained FFY 2022-2025 (+2) STIP that will be submitted to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for approval will be scheduled after this first round of meetings. We encourage participation, as comments received will help to guide the finalization of the STIP.

STIP projects on the islands of Oahu and Maui are programmed through the Oahu Metropolitan Planning Organization (Oahu MPO) and Maui Metropolitan Planning Organization (Maui MPO) Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) processes. Once the Oahu and Maui TIPs are approved, they are added to the STIP without change. For more information and to get involved in the development of the TIP please see:
