The RTA Board in March approved adding three projects to the region’s five-year capital program that will focus on safety, reliability, and the fight against climate change. Each of these projects, and many more, can be explored in more detail on the redesigned RTAMS Capital Program page.
The RTA approves a five-year capital program as part of its budget process each year, but regularly considers amendments due to changes in funding or project needs. The three projects added to the 2022-2026 Capital Program total $3.24 million. Watch the March Board meeting or read more about each project below.
