The TIP is a four-year, fiscally constrained, short-range program, which provides a prioritized list of multimodal transportation projects (including road, resurfacing, signalization, bridge, bicycle & pedestrian, transit, and safety) within the Metropolitan Planning Area. Its cooperatively developed every four-years and approved by the MPO Board and the Governors of Tennessee and Mississippi. The TIP provides an overview of how transportation revenues will be invested over a four-year period by state and local agencies that have legal responsibility to build, operate, and maintain that state's highway, street, and public transit systems.
The Memphis Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is currently in the development of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020-2023 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), which will cover the period from October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2023.
As part of the development process, the MPO issued a call for projects from eligible project sponsors. Projects submitted will be evaluated and scored using the TIP Project Ranking Criteria which was approved at the November 2018 meeting of the Transportation Policy Board (TPB).
Opportunities for public involvement will occur throughout the development of the FY 2020-23 TIP. Eligible project sponsors applying for funding will hold public meetings before the application deadline to inform residents of potential projects and get feedback. Additionally, along with the Federal and State agencies, the public will have the opportunity to review the draft TIP document in the Summer of 2019, before final approval. During this public review period, meetings will be held across the MPO Planning Area.
