2013-2016 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. Projects selected for the TIP are priorities for the region in all surface transportation areas including transit, roadway and highways, bicycle and pedestrian, rehabilitation, and transportation operations.

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC), the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Southern Nevada, develops the TIP in a collaborative effort with local governments, transit and transportation agencies, and the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT).
