Every two years, the MPO must develop a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) which lists the projects for which federal transportation funds will be spent during at least a three-year period. The MPO must demonstrate that the projects in the TIP have the funding reasonably available to complete the listed projects.
The MPO is currently seeking public comment on the FY 2021-2024 Transportation Improvement Program which includes both Ungrouped and Grouped projects. Ungrouped projects are broken into two categories. The first is Highway/Active Transportation Projects that are determined by the MPO or awarded to the MPO and/or one of the jurisdictions it represents. The second are Transit Projects (including operating assistance) that are selected by the local designated recipient, Brazos Transit District and approved by the MPO through adoption of the TIP. Grouped Projects are those that will begin construction during the four-year period but are selected by TxDOT and approved by the MPO through adoption of the TIP. The public review and comment period is from Friday, June 5, 2020, at 12 Noon, through Monday, July 6, 2020, at 9 a.m.
