KKCOM - Kane / Kendall Council of Mayors

STP Program

The Surface Transportation Program (STP) provides funding to municipalities for projects on the Federal-Aid Highway System. Northeastern Illinois is divided into 11 Council of Mayors, which are allocated STP funding for local transportation projects. The Kane/Kendall Council of Mayors receives approximately $12 million a year in STP funds.

Every other year, KKCOM hosts a STP-L Call for Projects. The projects are ranked according to the KKCOM methodology. The rankings are utilized by the Transportation Policy Committee to prepare a programming recommendation. The Policy Committee program recommendation is forwarded to the Full Council for approval. The program is then submitted to CMAP for the final votes and to be developed into the regional Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), the northeastern Illinois five year agenda of transportation projects.
