Roanoke Valley Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)
The Roanoke Valley Transportation Planning
Organization (TPO) is recognized as the official transportation planning agency for Roanoke, VA urban region as required by federal law . In order for the region to to receive federal funds for use on highway, transit, non-motorized, and multimodal systems, the TPO is required to develop a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a four-year financial program that describes the schedule for obligating federal funds to state and local projects. The TIP contains federal funding information for all modes of transportation including highways, transit and pedestrian facilities. Additionally, the TIP also reflects projects and priorities identified in the Long Range Transporation Plan. The TPO works closely with the Virginia Departments of Transportation and Rail & Public Transportation, as well as local transit operators, to update and amend the TIP each year as funding conditions change. The TIP also has an active public involvement process.
On June 24, 2014, the Roanoke Valley Transportation Planning Organization Policy Board approved an update to the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for Fiscal Years 2015-2018. In addition RVTPO staff developed A Basic Guide to the Transportation Improvement Program, which is a document designed to provide the general public an understanding of the TIP and the process. Finally, the RVTPO publishes an annual listing of TIP projects which have been obligated federal funds. All of these documents can be found by clicking on the links below. Thank you for your comments and participation in the Transportation Improvement Program update process.
