Study and Development Program
The Study and Development (S&D) Program is a listing of "study and development" projects active at NJDOT and
the MPOs. The FY 2016-2017 Study and Development Program was approved by the three MPOs. Study and
development is the work that is done to develop a feasible and appropriate project (or other solution) to
address a transportation problem. Study and development consists of the work performed during concept
development. The work of study and development includes developing a preferred alternative, securing
community support for the alternative, securing approval of environmental agencies for the alternative, and
developing a specific scope of work for the project. Projects in study and development are not normally
funded as individual projects in the STIP. Although the practice varies somewhat among the MPOs, most of the
study and development phases of work are funded through broader, program line items, such as "Project
Development, Preliminary Engineering." Exceptions to this rule include projects, which are funded through
special funding categories, such as "High Priority" projects.
