State Highway Operation and Protection Program (SHOPP) Ten-Year Project Book
Over the coming decade, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will undertake the most ambitious highway repair program the state has seen in generations. By the end of 2027, the State Highway System (SHS) should be in much better shape than it is today. This Ten-Year Project Book (Project Book) shows how Caltrans will make that happen. It provides a list of the individual projects needed to restore the SHS to a condition that meets the performance targets enshrined into law through the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 (SB 1). The Project Book is a natural extension of the recently adopted California Transportation Asset Management Plan (TAMP), which prioritizes projects based on their contribution to the overall health of SHS and its many component parts. The TAMP articulates performance targets established by legislation and action by the California Transportation Commission (Commission). There are more than $48 billion worth of individual projects here, all part of Caltrans’ fix-it-first program, known as the SHOPP (State Highway Operation and Protection Program). The SHOPP is supported by state and federal taxes and fees on vehicle fuels. Over one third of the funds – $18 billion – will come from SB 1.
Project Development Overview
Caltrans is responsible for developing projects that maintain the safety, condition and operation of the State Highway System. Project needs are the result of inspections, analysis, and system planning conducted by Caltrans. The project development process begins with the initiation of a Project Initiation Document (PID). Viable PIDs are then placed into a funding program (Programmed) and will be competitively advertised and awarded to private construction companies working in California. The following links provide information related to all phases of project planning, development and delivery.
The following link provides project level information for projects that are currently in the planning process. Typically, the project shown at the link below are being developed for potential future programming in the State Highway Operation and Protection Program (SHOPP). The projects shown are typically 1-3 years away from potential programming. Caltrans develops SHOPP project portfolios in even numbered years (2016,2018, 2020, etc) and project planning is happening 1-3 years prior to the SHOPP year.
In January of even numbered years, Caltrans prepares the SHOPP for approval by the California Transportation Commission. Once approved by the Commission, the SHOPP represents the projects that are anticipated to be designed, delivered and funded in the future four years beginning in July of the designated SHOPP year. Each new SHOPP consists of two years of carryover from the prior SHOPP and two years of new projects. Prior SHOPP documents can be found at this same link.
