Local Capital Project Delivery (LCPD) Program is a competitive program which provides funding to NJTPA subregions—the 15 city and county members of the NJTPA—to prepare proposed transportation projects for eventual construction with federal funding. This preparation involves completing the multi-step Capital Project Delivery Process which was developed by the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT). This process is designed to streamline project development and provide a common and consistent framework for federally funded projects at the local, regional and state level..
Also available: detailed information on the process, including interactive flow charts of the multiple project development phases; and information on studies funded through the program in fiscal years 2014 and 2016..
The initial phase of work in the LCPD program is the Concept Development Phase in which sponsors identify and compare reasonable alternatives and strategies that address the purpose and need statement and select a preliminary preferred alternative (PPA). Once a concept development report is completed, the Interagency Review Committee (IRC) will determine whether or not the project can be advanced to the next phase.
The next phase is normally the Preliminary Engineering Phase in which projects will be further developed and refined to a level of detail necessary to secure the approval of the environmental document, also known as the NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) document.
This work enables a project to be considered for inclusion in the NJTPA’s annual Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Projects must be included in the TIP to receive federal funding for final design, right-of-way acquisition and construction. Once federal funding through the TIP is obtained, subregions oversee these final phases of work to implement the project.
