The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a list of programs and projects that transportation funds will be allocated to in the near-term (4 years). The TIP is how the 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) is implemented.
The TIP covers a 4-year period and outlines the scope of the project, what phases will receive funding and the estimated cost. The TIP is updated every 4 years.
While estimated implementation dates are given for projects in the TIP, both projects development and the TIP are dynamic. The TIP is not as much a construction timeline as it is a financial program for scheduling and obligating federal funds and represents the intent to construct or implement a specific project. As projects and programs are developed, amendments and modifications to the TIP are often necessary to allow the document and program funds to adjust to changing conditions, costs and schedules. An amendment and modification process is provided to facilitate these changes. Major changes are accommodated through an “Amendment” process. Minor changes are accommodated through an “Administrative Modification.”
