2022-2025 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)
A Transportation Improvement Program (or TIP) is a comprehensive four-year program of regional transportation projects of all types: maintenance and preservation of existing roads, construction of new roads, public transit improvements, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, bridge replacement projects, etc. These projects come from cities, towns and agencies throughout Spokane County.
Key purposes of the TIP are to:
• Demonstrate fiscal constraint for the projects contained in the plan
• Demonstrate that the projects meet conformity with state air quality standards
• Identify other planned transportation projects adopted in local six-year TIPS
All transportation projects that receive federal funding are required to be included the TIP. SRTC updates the TIP every year and after it is approved it becomes part of the Washington State Transportation Improvement Program. The 2022-2025 TIP includes 85 projects totaling $743 million of local transportation investments to be spent over the next four years. The SRTC Board of Directors approved the 2022-2025 TIP on 10.14.2021.
What is a TIP Amendment?
The TIP is amended throughout the year from January to October, typically on a monthly basis, as project sponsors submit requests to add, modify or delete projects from the TIP. Each proposed amendment goes through a 10-day public comment period, is reviewed by the Transportation Technical Committee, and the final decision to approve (or deny) the amendment is made by the Board of Directors.
SRTC is accepting public comments on the proposed June TIP Amendment from 5/18/22 to 5/27/22. Details about the projects in the proposed amendment can be found in the blue box below.
