In its December 2022 status report, the Regional Transportation Authority  reported that 929 projects have been completed.

Of those, 17 major roadway corridor construction projects have been completed, and 11 additional corridors are partially completed. The roadway corridors make up the largest expense in the RTA plan and some are completed in phases.

Some corridors have seen intersection improvements to help with the flow of regional transportation, 195 such projects have been completed out of 200 intersections promised.

The RTA Board has committed to funding all named projects in the voter-approved plan to the ballot amount, and the RTA Citizens Advisory Committee is working to draft a proposed new slate of projects for voters to consider. The current plan expires in 2026.
