Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)


The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is the locally endorsed list of highway, bridge, and transit projects proposed to be implemented with Federal assistance. The Federal and State Governments designated the Lehigh Valley Transportation Study (LVTS) as the body responsible for preparing the TIP for Lehigh and Northampton Counties. The Federal Government requires that the TIP shall, at a minimum:


(1) consist of improvements from the locally developed transportation plan;

(2) cover a period of not less than three years;

(3) indicate the areas priorities; and

(4) include realistic cost estimates of the total cost and revenues for the program period.


Both highway and transit projects proposed to be implemented with Federal assistance must be included in an approved TIP as a condition to Federal review  and approval.
