Draft Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP)
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a federally mandated requirement (49 U.S.C. § 5303(j)) for all metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs). The TIP, also known as a short-range plan, lists all transportation projects in an MPO's metropolitan planning area that seek federal transportation funding within a four-year planning horizon. The draft TIP includes all regionally significant projects and all projects receiving federal funding in Fiscal Years 2021 to 2024.
The TIP is complementary to the long-range transportation plan (LRTP), that plans on at least a twenty-year horizon. The TIP is required to be updated to coincide with the update of the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). Staff has worked with VDOT, DRPT, GRTC, and human services providers to develop the project list and planned obligations for the TIP.
In addition to the public review of the draft TIP, the Richmond-Petersburg Area is also required to demonstrate compliance with the Clean Air Act (CAA). For more information, please see the draft conformity report page.
