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.
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.
