2015-2019 Transportation Improvement Program
What is the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) ?
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a fiscally constrained financial plan of transportation projects approved to receive federal funding over the next four years. The document also shows regionally significant projects which will not receive federal funding. Projects in the TIP are transportation priorities for the region and include transit, roadway and highway, bicycle and pedestrian, rehabilitation, and transportation operations projects.
This TIP will include a 5th fiscal year (2019) project list for illustrative purposes. This will allow the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) to streamline the next amendment and keep four active years of the TIP over the next two years.
The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Southern Nevada. In this capacity, the RTC must develop the TIP in collaboration with local governments, transit and transportation agencies, and the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT). The RTC must also engage the public in the TIP development process.
The 2013-2035 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) will also be amended to reflect the changes to the projects proposed the in the 2015-2019 TIP. The amendment to the RTP includes an updated air quality conformity analysis and determination which asserts TIP conforms with the applicable State Implementation Plans for air quality.
