Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)
Federal regulations require the Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance as the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Carbon, Monroe, Pike and Schuylkill Counties, to develop and maintain a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP identifies the region’s highest priority transportation projects, develops a multi-year program of implementation and identifies available federal and non-federal funding for the programmed project phases. The TIP shows the estimated cost of each project and a projected schedule for completion of the project. The TIP covers a four-year period of investment, must be fiscally-constrained, and is updated every two years through a cooperative effort of local, state and federal agencies, including participation by the general public.
