Transportation Improvement Program

A 4-Year Work Program for the Greater Nashville Area

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a four-year work program that lists all regionally significant and federally-funded transportation projects and services in the MPO planning area. The program includes projects for all modes of surface transportation including highways and streets, public transportation, and walking and bicycling. Any project included in the TIP must be consistent with, or be selected from an approved Long Range Transportation Plan. Additionally, the TIP must be fiscally constrained by estimated revenues, or have funding mechanisms currently in place to pay for the anticipated work. Though the TIP is adopted only once every three or four years, it can be amended to account for changes in funding or project needs.

The FYs 2017-2020 TIP was adopted by the MPO Transportation Policy Board on November 16, 2016 and identifies more than a billion dollars in federal, state, and local funding for transportation projects over coming years.
