Metro Strategic Project List

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) adopted the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) last year to provide a detailed roadmap for guiding Metro’s plan to build, operate, maintain, and partner for improved mobility over the next three decades. Included in the LRTP is the development of the Short Range Transportation Plan (SRTP), a 10-15 year action plan which contains the Strategic Project List (SPL). The SPL includes a list of planned but unfunded major transportation projects and approved transportation programs submitted to Metro from any of the nine councils of governments (COGs) in Los Angeles County.

 

The SPL includes two major components:

 

  1. Major Projects Component: A list of defined projects that support transit, roadway, bicycle, and pedestrian travel and goods movement.

  2. Programs Component: Capital investments in transportation programs that have been approved by a subregional COG in Los Angeles County.

 

Metro stated that the SPL is not a prioritized list and is not tied to existing funding sources or any specific future funding sources. Additionally, only projects of regional transportation significance should be included in the SPL. Local transportation projects may be eligible for the Multi-Year Subregional Program (MSP) funding or local return funding regardless of their listing on the SPL.

 

Furthermore, a project included in the SPL does not commit Metro or the COGs to fund the project; however, the existence of an up-to-date funded project list will be beneficial for Metro’s regional planning efforts and identify Los Angeles County’s overall transportation and funding needs.

The SGVCOG received a total of 42 requests from member agencies to include their projects and programs in Metro's Strategic Project List. Details of each request can be found below:
