The FY 2018 – 2021 and FY 2021 – 2024 Transportation Improvement Plan
A Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a federally mandated requirement (49 U.S.C. § 5303 (j)) for all metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs). The TIP, also known as a short-range plan, lists all transportation projects currently underway in an MPO, or expected to begin within a specific 4 year window, that are supported by federal transportation funding.
The TIP is complementary to the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) that guides the MPO’s planning on a twenty year horizon.
A TIP is considered official when it is formally adopted by both the MPO, and then adopted by the State into the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The current MATS TIP is for the FY 2018 – 2021 period. A new TIP was adopted for the FY 2021 – 2024 period on November 4, 2020. When the State adopts the FY 2021 – 2024 TIP into the STIP, then the FY 2021 – 2024 TIP will replace the FY 2018 – 2021 TIP.
The MATS TIP is comprised of five chapters and an appendix.
