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 DVRPC FY2019 TIP for Pennsylvania

This TIP was developed in cooperation with PennDOT, SEPTA, PART and DVRPC's member counties and cities. At this time, the FY2019 TIP (FY19-22) is not yet effective until there is federal approval of the PennDOT Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).

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.
