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 NJ TIP for Public Comment

Draft TIP cover The DVRPC Board adopted the Draft DVRPC FY2018 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for the NJ [6.4 MB pdf] portion of the region along with Recommended Technical Changes [0.1 MB pdf] on October 26, 2017, following a 30+ day public review and comment period that closed on September 14, 2017. This TIP was developed in cooperation with NJDOT, NJ TRANSIT, DRPA/PATCO and DVRPC's member counties and cities. The TIP public comment period also served as an opportunity to comment on NJDOT's Draft FY 2018 - 2027 Statewide TIP (STIP). At this time, the FY2018-2019 TIP is not yet effective until there is federal approval of the NJDOT Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).

    Project Implementation

    DVRPC provides project management assistance to PennDOT and our New Jersey counties for certain federally-funded transportation projects. The PennDOT-assisted projects include multi-use trails, reconstruction/restoration of historic transportation buildings, improvements to scenic roads, pedestrian facilities, and streetscape improvements, among other types of projects. DVRPC also assists our New Jersey counties with the implementation of bridge, roadway, and intersection improvement projects funded with Urban Allocated Surface Transportation Program (STU) funds.
