Background: The process to develop the 2017/18--2021/22 TIP started in June 2016 when the MPO Board adopted its 2016 Project Priority List. That list was forwarded to FDOT to prepare its Draft Tentative Five Year Work Program which includes roadway improvements, transportation alternatives, bridge, safety and public transportation projects (i.e. transit, aviation, port, intermodal and transportation disadvantaged program projects).
At the October 2016 MPO Board meeting, FDOT presented the Draft Tentative Five Year Work Program that addressed the priorities that were set by the MPO Board in June 2016. The 2017/18-2021/22 Draft Tentative Five Year Work Program is then incorporated into the FY 2017/18-2021/22 Transportation Improvement Program. The TIP will be presented to the MPO Board at their next MPO Board meeting on June 19, 2017. The TIP must be submitted to FDOT by July 15, 2017.
