The SMMPO TIP is a four-year programming document that lists all the needs of the regional transportation system.  The TIP is developed annually and is available for amendment and adjustment at any time.  Each program year of the TIP coincides with the Federal Fiscal Year, October 1 through September 30.  All projects are identified by fiscal year and federal funding category and include cost.  The total cost of the projects programmed in the TIP must be constrained to available funding, be consistent with the long-range Regional Transportation Plan, and include an annual element, or listing, of projects to be advertised in the first year of the TIP. 

The programming years of the TIP are divided into five sections:

FIRST YEAR ELEMENT - Transportation projects proposed for construction/implementation during federal fiscal year 2016 (October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2016).  First Year projects for construction should generally have reached the 75% design stage.

SECOND YEAR ELEMENT - Transportation projects proposed for construction/implementation during federal fiscal year 2017 (October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017). Second year projects for construction should generally have reached the 25% design stage.

THIRD YEAR ELEMENT - Transportation projects proposed for construction/implementation during federal fiscal year 2018 (October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018).

FOURTH YEAR ELEMENT - Transportation projects proposed for construction/implementation during federal fiscal year 2019 (October 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019).

FUTURE ELEMENT - A listing of long term highway, bridge or transit projects that are not expected to be ready for construction or implementation within five years.  The status of these projects may range from the early stages of development through Project Needs and Project Initiation submittals and beyond.

TIP DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

The TIP list of projects is developed annually by the SRPEDD Transportation Planning staff, acting as staff to the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for southeastern Massachusetts in consultation with federal, state and local officials, adjacent MPO’s, the state of Rhode Island, transit authorities and the public. Regional priorities for projects are established by the Joint Transportation Planning Group (JTPG), which acts as the transportation policy advisory group to the MPO, and the forum for public participation for transportation planning in the region.  After the TIP completes the public participation process it is transmitted to each member of the Southeastern Massachusetts MPO for their review, action and endorsement.
