The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is the region’s project plan for transportation improvements. It is the investment program consisting of capital and operational improvements to the metropolitan transportation system. The TIP is the means of implementing the goals and objectives of the long-range regional transportation plan.
The scope of the TIP has been expanded over the last few years. Initially, it included only those projects that had an element of federal funding and those that required a federal action. The TIP is now a more comprehensive transportation investment program than in previous years.
