The STIP is divided into two general sections: the appendixes and the narrative. The appendixes provide project specific information. Appendix A lists interim projects in the prior fiscal year administered by KDOT that are anticipated to obligate during the preparation and approval period of the new STIP. Appendix B is an index of all KDOT administered projects anticipated to obligate in one or more work phases, regardless of funding source, and that are anticipated to have funds obligated within the next four federal fiscal years. Appendix D, the advanced construction appendix lists all projects including, those in Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) areas, that are being advance constructed and provides the estimated conversion date(s) and the estimated conversion amount(s) for each project and each conversion. The narrative section briefly describes KDOT’s public involvement process, project selection criteria, program financing (including the fiscal constraint for the years of the STIP) and public transportation program.
Additionally, within the STIP narrative are brief descriptions of programs administered by entities other than KDOT. These programs are the Federal Lands & Tribal Transportation programs administered by the Office of Federal Lands Highway and the Bureau of Indian Affairs; Recreational Trails, a program administered by the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks & Tourism; and the Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs) administered by each of the MPOs for the six urbanized areas of Kansas.
A draft STIP document is published and a notice placed in the Kansas Register each year in August providing the public and transportation stakeholders an opportunity to comment. The draft STIP is also published on this web site while comments are being solicited. (A more detailed description of public involvement opportunities is available in KDOT's public participation document "Sharing the Future- Public Involvement in the Kansas Transportation System" located on the KDOT web publications page http://www.ksdot.org/publications.asp.) At the conclusion of a 30-day public comment period and with FHWA & FTA approval, the approved STIP is published and the document is placed on this site for viewing. Changes throughout the year to the projects in the STIP document are handled through an amendment or administrative change process. The procedure for this process may be viewed through the link at the top of the page "Revision Procedures for Amendments and Administrative Change Modifications to the STIP".
When a STIP document is updated throughout the year, a notice is placed in the Kansas Register and the list of proposed projects to be amended to the STIP is displayed on the current STIP page in the Draft STIP Amendments Out for Public Comment section and on this page above the link to the current STIP. At the conclusion of a 14-day comment period the draft amendment is submitted to FHWA and FTA for approval. Once approved the draft document is removed from this page and the approved amendment is published on the current STIP page in the Approved Regular Amendments or Approved Special Amendments sections as applicable.
