Project Development Workshops
EWG held five project development workshops to clarify STP-S program requirements, application procedures, project selection criteria, and program schedule. Information on the CMAQ program was also presented at the workshops. Presentations for the Illinois and Missouri workshops are available for download below:
Project Review Workshops
EWG will host three project review workshops for STP-S applicants. At these workshops, applicants will receive feedback from a panel of experts in regard to their proposed application. This workshop is intended for applicants that have at the very least a specific project concept to present for review. Applicants are required to submit a preliminary application, including a project location map, before the workshop so the panelists can gain some knowledge of the projects they will be reviewing. Each applicant will have a half-hour to discuss up to two projects. Attendance at this workshop is encouraged, but not required, to submit a project application. Attendees at the Missouri workshop are responsible for their own parking expenses.
Logical Termini Review
Illinois project sponsors are required to have defined logical termini before a final application may be submitted. This means a project must have rational end points and have independent utility when completed. If logical termini have not been approved by IDOT for a project, Illinois project sponsors are required to attend a logical termini review at IDOT. The review consists of a 20-minute time slot for the project sponsor to discuss the project scope and for IDOT and FHWA to make a determination on termini.
