The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a multi-year listing of transportation projects within the Jackson Metropolitan Area with a commitment of funding from a combination of federal, state, and/or local sources. The TIP serves as a short-term planning document that lists approximately four years of federally funded or regionally significant transportation projects designed to carry out the recommendations of the region’s long-range Metropolitan Transportation Plan. The projects include various capital and operating needs of the region including reconstruction; maintenance and operation of major highways, arterials, collectors, and intersections; maintenance of public transit services; and construction of bicycle and pedestrian improvements.
All projects that have received a commitment of federal transportation funds, along with non-federally funded projects that are regionally significant, are included in the TIP. The TIP lists all project phases and the anticipated implementation schedule for those phases for each included project. Project phases can include preliminary engineering, design, environmental review, right-of-way acquisition, and construction.
The TIP is regional in scope and does not represent projects statewide. Therefore, each MPO’s TIP is incorporated into the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The STIP lists all projects across the state including those identified in each MPO’s TIP.
The approved FFY 2023-2026 TIP can be modified to add new projects, delete projects, or to accommodate cost, phase of work, and scope changes to a project. Major changes require public review opportunities while minor changes can be made administratively. The TIP document is updated as needed to include any changes that have been made since it was originally approved. The FFY 2023-2026 TIP Administrative Modification and Amendment table details any changes that have been made since the TIP was originally adopted.
