Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a four-year work program that lists all regionally significant and federally-funded transportation projects and services in the MPO planning area. The Federal funding programs are found in Titles 23 and 49 of the United States Code (USC). The TIP includes projects for all modes of surface transportation, including highways and streets, public transportation, and walking and bicycling. All projects in the TIP are derived from the Johnson City MTPO 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), which is a plan that is required to cover at least a twenty (20) year timeframe of planning for projects in the future.  Additionally, the TIP must be fiscally constrained by including a financial plan that demonstrates how the program of projects can be implemented.  This includes identifying eligible federal, state, and local funding sources and the fiscal year in which each project's phases are to be funded.

The current Fiscal Years (FY) 2017-2020 TIP was adopted by the Executive Board and Executive Staff on November 4, 2016. It was approved by FHWA and FTA on January 6, 2017. It runs from October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2020.
