Every year in July, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) district begins developing its Five-Year Work Program. Following an extensive review process, the Work Program is adopted in July of the following year and a summary “snapshot” of projects listed in the Work Program is provided to the TPO in April. This “snapshot” includes a list of funded projects which are required to appear in the TPO’s TIP.
When the new TIP and Work Program are adopted in June and July, respectively, there are often projects in the previous TIP which had funding programmed but the work was not completed due to delays or a host of other reasons. The programmed funds must then be “rolled forward” into the next TIP so that the work can be completed. The TIP must therefore be amended to include those delayed projects and so that the funding amounts match the Work Program.
This Roll Forward Amendment includes funds for three projects: FDOT’s Westshore Interchange Major Reconstruction, City of Tampa’s Floribraska Avenue Complete Street project, and HART’s New Maintenance Facility. All three projects were budgeted in the last fiscal year and have been delayed into the current fiscal year. It’s now anticipated that these activities will be underway no later than June 30, 2023.
This amendment ensures that year one of the TIP, adopted by the Board on June 8th, 2022, matches year one of the FDOT Work Program, with no funds left on the table.
