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 includes 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 RTC Board of Commissioner adopted the TIP on August 14, 2014. The TIP was submitted to the Nevada Department of Transportation’s for inclusion in the Statewide TIP and federal approval. The US Department of Transportation approved the 2015-2019 TIP on January 13, 2015, replacing the 2013-2016 TIP.
