Delaware Department of Transportation

Capital Transportation Program (CTP)


Each year the Department of Transportation develops a 6-year Capital Transportation Plan (CTP) that identifies anticipated capital investments. This plan is developed in cooperation with the Wilmington Area Planning Council (WILMAPCO), Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization and Sussex County. The plan provides information on the actual cost expenditures for each project phase that are anticipated in each specific fiscal year. The following documents provide a brief overview of the process and specific information about DelDOT's prioritization criteria.

Planning Organizations

Current Plan:

The FY19 to FY24 Capital Transportation Program (CTP) is currently being revised based on anticipated revenues for FY19. These modifications and amendments are currently going through the Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO) approval process. Information on these changes is available from their websites (see links above). Upon approval by the MPO's the information will be forwarded to FHWA for final approval in September 2018.

Proposed Plan – FY20 to FY25:

The following documents provide information on the proposed capital transportation program for the upcoming 6 year cycle. DelDOT in conjunction with the Council on Transportation (COT) make this plan available to the public during the month of August and September and accepts public comments up to 10 days after the last public workshop. The COT considers the public comments and provides final approval of the Capital Transportation Program by March 1st of the following year. The funding of the program is enabled through Bond Bill legislation for the next fiscal year.

On August 14, 2018, the Council on Transportation released the proposed FY20 to FY25 Capital Transportation Program. Below are the links associated with the proposed plan:
