Public Review of FY 2020-2023 Transportation Improvement Program
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for FY 2020-2023 is the region’s short-range capital improvements program for roads, pathways, transit and other transportation projects in mid-Michigan’s Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties. It includes descriptions of our regional transportation planning process, describes the state and federal regulations that guide regional transportation planning, and lists transportation projects proposed for 2020 through 2023 in the region. The TIP is developed through a cooperative planning process by the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission, this area’s federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO).
The FY 2020-2023 TIP is focused on transportation projects that will be funded with federal and state transportation funds. It includes project information about various transportation modes including roads, transit (bus), and non-motorized (bicycle and pedestrian) pathways. Projects in this TIP are listed by state and federal funding category and by year. Per requirement, it is fiscally constrained, which means that only projects with confirmed funding may be listed.
The public is invited to review and formally comment on the FY 2020-2023 Transportation Improvement Program from June 4-26, 2019.

There are also two in-person opportunities for the public to comment on the draft TIP: Tuesday, June 4th at 8:30 a.m. at the CARTS Technical Committee meeting and on Wednesday, June 26th at 6 p.m. at the Board of Commissioners meeting.
Draft lists of proposed projects have been shared and posted throughout the region and on Tri-County’s website beginning in November 2018 and continuing through to the adoption of this document in June 2019. Public notices, public meetings, and a variety of work group and committee meetings were facilitated with the general public and area transportation agencies to gather input and participation in the development of this document. The TIP development is a cooperative planning effort and the projects listed represent agreed upon priorities as identified by our region's many transportation planning partners.
