TIP projects are often funded by federal dollars. But any project considered ‘Regionally Significant’ by the MPO is added to the TIP. This can happen before implementation regardless of the funding source. These funds come either through the Kentucky State Highway Plan, from the MPO directly, or by receiving competitive grants. A funding source from our region, or a “local match,” covers any remaining project costs. TIP projects can include roadway retrofits, new construction, bike/pedestrian improvements, studies, plans, and more. A new TIP is drafted every 4 years. As funding needs and construction timelines change, LAMPO has to adjust the TIP. Small, simple modifications are made by LAMPO staff. However, any shifts in the scope of a TIP project are introduced as amendments. These amendments require a public comment period as well as final formal approval by the Transportation Policy Committee.
