One of the mandates of the federal government is that our Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) has to be consistent with our long-range transportation program, which makes sense. We recently updated our long-range plan, known as Horizon 2040, which means we had to update our TIP as well, to make sure they reflect each other.

The TIP is a four-year funding program document that lists transportation improvements proposed by jurisdictions within Spokane County. It identifies specific programs or projects they plan to build or undertake during the upcoming four years.
Another government requirement is that whenever you make substantial changes to either document, they have to go through a public comment period, including a meeting to give members of the public a chance to review and comment on the documents.

The TIP is out to a public comment period right now, and an open house
is scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, December 3 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. It will be held at SRTC’s office,  221 W. First Ave., Suite 310, Spokane, WA 99201. 


The TIP can
be viewed at If you’d like to submit comments but cannot attend the open
house, the public comment period goes through 4 p.m. on December 11, 2013.
Comments may be emailed to, mailed to SRTC at the address above,
or phoned in to (509) 343-6370.
