About the TIP

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) serves as a tool to implement projects from the EMPO Metropolitan Transportation Plan, as well as a document to keep the public informed about projects in the EMPO transportation planning area. The TIP includes a five-year program of projects, and is updated on a two year cycle. Federal legislation requires that all transportation projects requesting federal transportation funding under title 23 U.S.C. or the Federal Transit Act be included in a TIP that has been determined to conform to federal air quality standards. The TIP includes improvements to highways, public transit, bikeways, pedestrian facilities, bridges, traffic signals and other aspects of transportation systems. It may also include planning and engineering studies that may lead to construction in later years. Along with an overview of the transportation planning process, the TIP provides a listing, by agency, of all federally funded highway and transit improvements that are programmed in the region.

The EMPO Policy Committee adopted the TIP for Fiscal Years 2020-2024 on March 14, 2019.

TIP Amendment Schedules and Approvals

Each formal amendment period involves the submittal of new TIP projects and changes to existing projects fifteen (15) days prior to the Technical and Policy Committee meetings (Please refer to the calendar for specific dates). Public notification of the actions will be posted on the Evansville MPO website and input will be accepted during the public comment period. Once reviewed by the public, and approved by the MPO Technical and Policy Committees, the appropriate State DOT (INDOT or KYTC), FHWA, and FTA are notified of the approval. The appropriate State DOT will then process a STIP amendment according to their STIP amendment process. Following the State DOT review for inclusion in the STIP, FHWA and FTA are notified that the STIP amendment is available for federal review and approval.

TIP amendments requiring a new conformity finding will have additional steps required prior to presentation to the committees for approval.
