The Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) examines the region’s transportation needs and provides a framework to address anticipated growth through systems and policies. The RTP provides a comprehensive statement of the regional future transportation needs as identified by local jurisdictions, the State and other stakeholders. It contains strategies aimed at improving mobility and access, and defines both short- and long-term transportation strategies and investments to improve the region’s transportation system.
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) allocates federal funds for use in construction of the highest-priority transportation projects in the near term of the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). The TIP must be consistent with the long-range objectives of the RTP and must be financially balanced.
