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, and MAP-21). 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, safety, and freight related projects, as well as the more traditional highway and public transit projects.

For an overview of the TIP, how it was developed, and how you can become involved, see the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Handbook. [1.8 MB pdf]
