Thurston Regional Planning Council (TRPC) invites public comment on a proposal to revise the amendment process to the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP), a list of state-sponsored, federally funded, and regionally significant transportation projects in Thurston County. Beginning Nov. 3rd, 2017, it is proposed to change the RTIP Amendment process as follows:

  • The TRPC Transportation Policy Board (TPB) will approve RTIP formal amendments.
  • Public notice for formal amendments to the RTIP will be published on TRPC’s website,, and will no longer be published in the Olympian.  
  • The RTIP Administrative Modification process will apply to the following two additional categories of RTIP amendments:
    • All WSDOT projects, unless reviewing staff determine a formal amendment is warranted.
    • All amendments where the purpose is to change only state or local dollars, meaning federal funding is not affected.
