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.
FY 2012-2017 TIP Amendment #2
Public comment for Amendment #2 of the FY 2012-2017 TIP closed on May 19, 2013. No public comment was received. The purpose of the amendment is to shift remaining funds for right-of-way acquisition and construction on two managed lane projects on I-75 South in Henry County from state bonds to the federal National Highway Performance Program (NHPP) category. Federal STP Urban funds previously authorized for preliminary engineering will also be reprogrammed for use on construction. The changes are being requested by the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) to take advantage of FY 2013 funding program balances and eliminate the need to incur bond financing charges in delivering these projects. Please visit the TIP Amendment #2 website for more information.
