Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

FY2016-2019 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a subset of the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). The TIP provides a short-term (four-year) work program that lists all regionally significant and federally funded transportation projects, programs, and transportation services to be carried out within the metropolitan planning area. The TIP serves as a strategic management tool that accomplishes the objectives of the LRTP, and essentially is the first four years of the 25-year RTP.

The TIP includes projects for all modes of surface transportation including highways and streets, public transportation, bicycles and pedestrians. Any project included in the TIP must be consistent with, or be selected from the approved Regional Transportation Plan. Additionally, the TIP must be fiscally constrained by estimated future revenues, or have funding mechanisms currently in place to pay for the anticipated work. Though the TIP is adopted only once every four years, it is updated annually, and can be amended as necessary to account for changes in funding or project needs.

The TIP must be approved by the MPO and the Governor and an air quality conformity determination must be made by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Authority (FTA) with concurrence by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). It then becomes, without modification, part of the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
