Visit the TIP page on the MPO website to view and comment on the Interactive TIP here: https://www.mympo.org/m/mandates/tip.

Background: The process to develop the 2019/20-2023/24 TIP started in June 2018 when the MPO Board adopted its 2018 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).
The TIP will be presented at upcoming committee meetings on May 6th and will be presented to the MPO Board at their next MPO Board meeting on May 20, 2019. The TIP must be submitted to FDOT by July 15, 2019.
