I get asked a lot what projects are road construction projects are coming up in the next couple years. Considering that I can’t even remember what I had for breakfast most days, I usually refer people who ask this to the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP is a document that lists transportation projects that jurisdictions within Spokane
County plan to undertake during the upcoming four years. 
Every year the TIP is updated for the upcoming four years. We have recently completed that update process and are now asking members of the public for input on the projects included in the 2016-2019 Transportation Improvement Program. The 2016-2019
TIP contains:
  •   A
    total of 122 projects; 26 more than the current 2015-2018 TIP.
  • $816
    million dollars in local transportation investments to be spent between 2016
    and 2019.
  • $44
    million of that amount comes from funds distributed through SRTC. The remainder  is provided through sources such as the street levy implemented by
    the City of Spokane, impact fees and local improvement districts.

Projects in
the TIP vary; from projects that maintain and preserve our roads to
construction of new facilities like the North Spokane Corridor and projects
that encourage economic development. There is also bridge replacement projects,
public transit improvements and bicycle and pedestrian facilities included in
the document.
You can check out the 2016-2019
TIP at https://www.srtc.org/tip.html. For even more TIP-related fun, you can play around with the map below to see where projects included in the document will be located.
