BTPO Transportation Improvement Program
The purpose of the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is to provide information to the Idaho Transportation Department, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Transit Administration (FTA), the public, and other interested parties on the federally funded projects which will occur over the next four years. The TIP also indicates that Bannock Transportation Planning Organization has met the requirements of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) for the development of a Transportation Improvement Program. The Transportation Improvement Program is a listing of all federally funded transportation projects within the Bannock Transportation Planning Organization (BTPO) planning area.
The TIP is a four-year prioritized listing of all federally funded transportation projects planned to be built within the MPO boundaries. The TIP is also an implementation tool of the Long Range Transportation Program (LRTP), therefore all local projects listed must either come from the LRTP or be found to be consistent with the LRTP.
Projects have different funding categories, but all are funded with Department of Transportation funds. The different Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) funding categories are Congestion Mitigation/Air Quality (CMAQ), Enhancement, Surface Transportation Program (State and Urban), Interstate Maintenance, and High Priority. The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funding categories are Section 5303 Planning and Section 5307 Urbanized Area Formula Program. State funded projects are also listed for informational purposes.
There is only one official TIP for the BTPO area and that TIP is the FY 2016 -2019 TIP. As mentioned there is an annual update which occurs where completed projects are removed and new projects enter the TIP.
