The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a short-term plan that programs funding, particularly federal funding, for transportation projects. All projects within the Albuquerque Metropolitan Planning Area (AMPA) receiving federal highway or transit funding must be in the TIP. The TIP is the region's mechanism of allocating its limited transportation resources among the various transportation needs based on a clear set of short-term transportation priorities. Updated bi-annually, it sets the schedule for improvements to the region's transportation system over the next six years.
MRMPO completed the Albuquerque Metropolitan Planning Area’s (AMPA) new FFY 2016-2021 Transportation Improvement Program this past spring. The new FFY 2016-2021 TIP will become effective on October 1, 2015. In the meantime, MRMPO has created some TIP infographics which explain the TIP development process, the relationship between the TIP and Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), summary statistics and new trends in funding transportation projects which coincide with findings in our Futures 2040 long range transportation plan.
Final action was taken on April 17th by the Metropolitan Transportation Board to approve the region's FFY 2016-2021 TIP for the Albuquerque Metropolitan Planning Area.
