2020 - 2024 Transportation Improvement ProgramImage of TIP cover

The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) requires that the metropolitan transportation planning process include the cooperative development of a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) – a staged, multi-year program of projects. The TIP identifies the timing and funding of all highway, bridge, transit, intelligent transportation system, bicycle, and pedestrian transportation projects scheduled for implementation in the region during the next four years using federal transportation funds.

The 2020-2024 TIP includes transportation projects funded with approximately $410 million of federal aid, supplemented by other state and local sources of funds. Our region’s TIP is developed cooperatively by GTC and the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT). GTC and NYSDOT typically conduct a complete update of the TIP every three years. The previous TIP was adopted in 2016. The 2020-2024 TIP includes the last year of the 2017-2020 TIP (October 2019 through September 2020) plus four additional years (October 2020 through September 2024). The TIP must be flexible enough to allow for new or changing priorities, adjustments to project scopes, schedules, and/or costs, and inclusion of new funding to the region. This flexibility is provided primarily through TIP amendments.
