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. In order to be included in the TIP, these projects must have available funding.
Preparation of the TIP is required by the federal legislation known as Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) and by the Metropolitan Planning Regulations (23 CFR 450.324) of the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT). Federal regulations require the Memphis MPO's transportation planning activities, including the development of the TIP, to be carried out in a Continuing, Cooperative and Comprehensive manner (the "3-C" approach).
Following are the FY 2020-23 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) documents, including the associated Air Quality Conformity Demonstration Reports for Shelby and DeSoto Counties, which were adopted by the Memphis MPO's Transportation Policy Board (TPB) on September 12, 2019.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Tennessee and Mississippi Divisions and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Region IV Office, in coordination with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region IV Office, have found the documents to be in conformity with Federal air quality regulations as noted in the Air Quality Conformity Determination letters below.
The final TIP will be incorporated into both the Tennessee and Mississippi Departments of Transportation's State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), after the STIPs have been approved by FHWA and FTA.
