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.
The Mid-Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (MRMPO) has begun the development of the FFY 2018-2023 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and is once again soliciting projects from throughout the Albuquerque Metropolitan Planning Area (AMPA). TIP project proposals are to be submitted no later than November 28, 2016, 5:00 PM (MST).
