The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a programming document that details a 4-year budget of transportation projects. The TIP describes all regionally significant, federally funded projects and transportation services in the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) area for all modes of transportation (roadways, bikeways, pedestrian facilities, and transit), as well as enhancement projects.
This document provides a Transportation Improvement Program that is financially feasible and that depicts the MPO's regional priorities for the expenditure of federal funds. Once the projects within the TIP are approved by the Governor, they will become part of the Tennessee State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
The TIP is a short-term implementation program for projects that are contained in an adopted LRTP.
