Transportation Improvement Program
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) identifies the transportation projects and strategies that MUMPO and NCDOT plan to undertake over the next seven years. All projects receiving federal funding must be in the TIP. The TIP is the region’s way of allocating its limited transportation resources among the various capital and operating needs of the area, based on a clear set of short-term transportation priorities.
- Is updated at least every two years;
- Is realistic in terms of available funding and is not just a "wish list" of projects. This concept is known as fiscal constraint;
- Conforms with the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for air quality (MUMPO is classified as nonattainment for ozone);
- Is approved by the MPO and the governor; and
Is incorporated directly, without change, into North Carolina’s State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
