Regional transportation planning organizations have a significant impact on the ranking of applicants. Each RTPO provides WSDOT with a list of applicants and associated projects in their region ranked by local priority which translates into evaluation points. Using a ranked list, WSDOT matches the highest ranking projects with the appropriate available source(s) of funding. The goal is to award as many projects as possible.

At this time 8 applications have been submitted to NEW RTPO for ranking. On September 26th at 10:00am TAC and TEDD Members will be ranking applications. Applications will be judged on the following grading rubric.
