Transportation improvement program (TIP)
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a short-range program that identifies transportation projects to be implemented in the Flint Hills MPO region over the next four years. All projects in the region that use federal transportation funds and/or are regionally significant are required to be included in the TIP.
Annual Listing of Obligated Projects
Transportation legislation enacted by Congress requires that:
“An annual listing of projects, including investments in pedestrian walkways and bicycle transportation facilities, for which Federal funds have been obligated in the preceding year shall be published or otherwise made available by the cooperative effort of the State, transit operator, and metropolitan planning organization for public review.” 23 CFR 134(j)(7)(B)
As required, this report lists all transportation projects authorized or revised to increase obligations of federal transportation funds in the metropolitan area during the identified federal fiscal year (October 1 – September 30). The federal government obligates, or commits, funds to a project only after the completion of the required project development process and all local, state, and federal approvals have been obtained. The obligated amounts reflected in the report may not be equal to the final project cost. Additionally, the report indicates those projects for which bicycle and pedestrian elements are included.
