State transportation officials made history as they unveiled the largest spending plan in the Department’s history. A five-year, $7.2-Billion Statewide Transportation Improvement Plan – STIP – was presented to highway commissioners for their approval. The amount gets the biggest boost from the newly acquired Amendment Three money. Transportation Director Pete Rahn says there won’t be just one big project that will make up the whole $7.2-Billion. There’ll be money for smaller projects. The STIP now goes into a public comment period for the next month-and-a-half. Commissioners will make a final decision at the July meeting. Rahn expects no stumbling blocks between now and then.
