Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Background Info

The TIP is a four-year, fiscally constrained, short-range program, which provides a prioritized list of multimodal transportation projects (including capital, resurfacing, signalization, bridge, pedestrian & bicycle, and transit) within the Metropolitan Planning Area.  Its cooperatively developed every four-years and approved by the MPO Board and the Governors of Tennessee and Mississippi. The TIP provides an overview of how transportation revenues will be invested over a four-year period by state and local agencies that have legal responsibility to build, operate, and maintain highways, streets, and public transit systems. In order to be included in the TIP, these projects must have available funding.  The TIP supports the vision of the Livability 2050 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and complies with Federal air quality regulations. Only proposed City of Memphis projects are contained on this website.
