Transportation Improvement Programs (TIP)
The Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) are responsible for developing and maintaining a short-term Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for the metropolitan planning area. The MPO TIP lists all planned highway and transit improvement projects in the metropolitan planning areas programmed to receive federal assistance from the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration over the next four federal fiscal years. Federal regulations require the TIP to be financially constrained and consistent with the anticipated federal funds allocated to the urbanized areas. For each project, the federal funding category, the estimated cost and the fiscal year funds that will be needed are listed. The project schedule is broken down by implementation phase.
The Naugatuck Valley planning region is divided by two metropolitan planning areas. Because of this, the NVCOG develops and maintains two separate TIPs, one for each MPO. The priority projects included in the TIPs are advanced from the LRTPs. The TIPs are developed in collaboration with CTDOT, public transit operations and member municipalities.
