Background Discussion

This agenda item is for review of the Florida Department of Transportation’s Tentative Work Program.  The Work Program is a five-year schedule of State and Federal funded capital improvements.  It also includes some local operations and maintenance support.  Table 1 shows the approximate flow of the work program development process. The process is currently at the steps in November and December of Year 1.  FDOT is preparing the work program earlier this year because of an early start of the 2016 legislative session in January (instead of March as done in the past).

Some Work Program projects are selected based on the priorities of the Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), which are in turn based on County priorities.  Therefore, and as a stakeholder, the MPO Board reviews the program and provides recommendations during the regional agency and public involvement process leading up to the 2016 legislative session.

This agenda item will include an overview of the projects in the Draft Tentative Work Program for FY16/17-FY20/21.  The attachments include the work program (Manatee County 2017 TWP Final.pdf) and the 'Additions, Reschedulings, and Deletions' table (Manatee Additions Reschedulings and Deletions.pdf) that summarizes changes since last year's program.

The State has not requested formal MPO endorsement of the program this year.   However, because there may be an opportunity to comment on the program at the December 14, 2015, MPO Board meeting, staff recommends the Board endorse the program.
