Encompass 2040 Call for Projects

Encompass 2040 Call for Projects

Local entities and transportation agencies are invited to submit projects for consideration in Encompass 2040, the long-range transportation plan of the Oklahoma City Area Regional Transportation Study (OCARTS) area. Projects listed in the existing 2035 OCARTS Plan will not automatically be carried forward. All projects – new or old – need to be submitted again due to changing federal financial and environmental guidelines and to support a new policy direction for Encompass 2040. Developing a list of transportation projects that improve the way people and goods move around Central Oklahoma is a critical element of Encompass 2040. This federally required project listing is intended to help the region identify and prioritize future transportation investments based on adopted regional goals, strategies and estimated financial resources.

Supporting Documents

Project Submission Guidebook (.PDF) Project Submission Form Excel Workbook (.XLSM) Project Submission Workbook (no form/macro version) .XLSX) All project information and answers to criteria questions should be submitted through this workbook. The macro-enabled document is designed for easy entry of up to 100 projects; there is no need to submit this workbook once for each project. The form is arranged vertically, and each project is given its own column. Scores are calculated automatically. To simplify data entry, a macro (Visual Basic) form provides a straightforward way to submit information for one project. Simply click the Project Submission Form button at the top of the sheet to open the dialog box, enter the project’s information into all of the tabs, and press the Insert into Workbook button. Each operation of this feature will insert project information into a new column. (When opening the form for the first time, be sure to click the Enable Content button that should appear in the security warning above the workbook to enable this functionality.) A macro-free version of this workbook is provided for those who would prefer to work without macros. Data can still be entered manually into unlocked cells, and, where practical, drop-down menus aid data entry. Scores are still calculated automatically.

However, it is useful in providing local governments and other transportation agencies with information on critical areas that may need special attention during project development.
