Transportation Improvement Program

Public Comment on DRAFT FY2016-2020 Regional Transportation Improvement Program Public Involvement Plans
FY2015-2019 Regional Transportation Improvement Program Forms

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a short-range (3-5 year) capital improvement program (budget) of transportation projects consistent with federal regulations and area policies and strategies. The TIP lists all projects for which federal funds are anticipated, along with non-federally funded projects that are regionally significant. The TIP represents the transportation improvement priorities of the region and is required by federal law. The list includes roadway and public transit projects. For more information contact: Toni Tisdale, 475-2238.

COMPASS produces a regional TIP for both the Northern Ada County and Nampa Urbanized Area and updates the document annually. The list of TIP projects must be endorsed by the COMPASS Board. The U.S. Department of Transportation requires that all projects in the TIP be derived from an approved long range transportation plan, meet air quality requirements and be financially constrained to the amount of funds that are expected to be available. The TIP shows the estimated costs and projected construction schedule of transportation projects. The TIP brochure describes in more detail how the TIP is developed. (English/Español)

The Idaho Transportation Department’s Idaho Transportation Investment Program (ITIP) and Ada County Highway District’s Integrated Five-Year Work Plan provide information on additional transportation projects not included in the TIP.

COMPASS busca comentarios en un presupuesto que muestra dónde los dólares federales de transporte se gastarán en los próximos cinco años en los condados de Ada y Canyon (año fiscal 2016-2020). El presupuesto, llamado el Programa de Mejoramiento del Tránsito Regional (TIP), incluye el Programa federal de los Proyectos propuestos para financiación por el Tránsito Regional del Valle de 2016.

Además, COMPASS busca comentarios con una demostración de conformidad de la calidad del aire para el norte del condado de Ada. Se requiere esta demostración en unas áreas, tal como el norte del condado de Ada, donde la calidad del aire no cumplía con las normas federales en el pasado. La demostración debe mostrar que los proyectos que figuran en el TIP ya cumplen con los planes de calidad del aire del estado.

El personal estará disponible para responder preguntas y tomar los comentarios en una casa abierta en Martes, 04 de agosto 2015 en el COMPASS primer piso Sala de Juntas, 700 NE 2nd Street, Meridian, 10:00 am - 7:30 pm.
