Development of the FY 2023-26 TIP is underway! The project list is on schedule for approval at the Memphis MPO's ETC & TPB Meetings on May 19th, please see the Call for Project Applications & Project List Approval section below for the project list.
The TIP is a four-year, fiscally constrained, short-range program, which provides a prioritized list of multimodal transportation projects (including capital, resurfacing, signalization, bridge, pedestrian & bicycle, and transit) 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 highways, streets, and public transit systems. In order to be included in the TIP, these projects must have available funding. The TIP supports the vision of the Livability 2050 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) must be in conformity with Federal air quality regulations.
