Transportation Improvement Program
The Charlottesville-Albemarle Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a document used to schedule spending of federal transportation funds within the metropolitan region, in coordination with significant state and local funds, for the federal fiscal years 2015 through 2018. The TIP is a prioritized listing/program of transportation projects that is developed and formally adopted by the Charlottesville-Albemarle Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) as part of the metropolitan transportation planning process.
The fiscal years spanned by the FY2015-2018 TIP begin on October 1, 2014 and end September 30, 2019. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is a primary sponsor for many of the projects. Activities listed for Charlottesville Area Transit and JAUNT are projects and programs sponsored by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) over the coming four-year period.
Federal regulations only require that projects that will use federal funding and/or other federal approval appear in the TIP. In Charlottesville-Albemarle, state and locally funded projects are included for a more comprehensive document. Inclusion of these local and state funded projects indicates approval by the MPO but does not necessarily indicate endorsement of them by the individual local governments, nor does it indicate state endorsement of local projects.
FINAL FY15 to FY18 Transportation Improvement Program
The MPO Policy Board approved the FY15 to FY18 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) at its May 28th 2014 Board meeting. The TIP lists federally funded road, transit, bicycle, pedestrian and related transportation projects to be undertaken over three years in the Charlottesville-Albemarle MPO urban area. For more information about the TIP please contact MPO Program Manager, Sarah Rhodes, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
