Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

The TIP is the regionally agreed-upon list of priority transportation projects, as required by federal law (ISTEA, TEA-21, SAFETEA LU, MAP-21, and the FAST Act). The TIP document must list all projects that intend to use federal funds, along with all non-federally funded projects that are regionally significant. We also include all other State funded capital projects. The projects are multi-modal; that is, they include bicycle, pedestrian, ITS, and freight related projects, as well as the more traditional highway and public transit projects.


Draft FY2017 PA TIP for Public Comment

Draft TIP cover The Draft DVRPC FY2017 TIP (FY2017-2020) for the Pennsylvania portion of the region was adopted with Recommended Changes as the priority program of transportation projects by the DVRPC Board on July 28, 2016, following a 30+ day public comment period which ended on June 27, 2016. This TIP was developed in cooperation with PennDOT, SEPTA, Pottstown Area Rapid Transit (PART), and DVRPC's member cities and counties (see the Public Notice). The Draft TIP, along with the public comments, agency responses, and list of Recommended Changes, were presented to the DVRPC Board for adoption on July 28, 2016. When also approved by the FHWA and FTA, the DVRPC FY2017 TIP for Pennsylvania will become effective and posted on the DVRPC website on October 1, 2016.

The 30+ day public comment period from May 27, 2016 to June 27, 2016 was conducted jointly with PennDOT, SEPTA, and PART. It allowed the public an opportunity to review and comment on the program prior to it being presented to the DVRPC Board for adoption. DVRPC also solicited public comment on an amendment to the Connections 2040 long range plan held concurrently with Draft TIP, as well as the Draft Transportation Conformity Finding from June 3, 2016 to July 5, 2016.

Comments are no longer being accepted on the Draft DVRPC FY2017 TIP for PA. Responses to written comments are available on the DVRPC website via the TIP Comment/Search/Map Tool.
