It's that time of year again! Every year the Sarasota/Manatee MPO updates the 5 Year Transportation Improvement Program, or TIP, and the new draft TIP covering fiscal years 2016/17--2020/21 is now avilable for public review and comment.

Background: The process to develop the 2016/17--2020/21 TIP started in March 2015 when the MPO Board adopted its 2015 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 December 2015 MPO Board meeting, FDOT presented the Draft Tentative Five Year Work Program that addressed the priorities that were set by the MPO Board in March 2015. The 2016/17-2020/21 Draft Tentative Five Year Work Program is incorporated into the FY 2016/17-2020/21 Transportation Improvement Program. The TIP will go before the MPO Boad for adoption at their next MPO Board meeting on June 27, 2016. The TIP must be submitted to FDOT by July 15, 2016.
