NEPA Metropolitan Planning Organization
(NEPA MPO)

Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

Federal regulations require the Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance as the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Carbon, Monroe, Pike and Schuylkill Counties, to develop and maintain a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).  The TIP identifies the region’s highest priority transportation projects, develops a multi-year program of implementation and identifies available federal and non-federal funding for the programmed project phases.  The TIP shows the estimated cost of each project and a projected schedule for completion of the project.  The TIP covers a four-year period of investment, must be fiscally-constrained, and is updated every two years through a cooperative effort of local, state and federal agencies, including participation by the general public.  Extensive public outreach is conducted during the development of the TIP, and public comments are considered fully in the development of the program. A detailed discussion of the NEPA MPO’s public outreach activities are detailed in the Public Involvement Plan found here.

2021-2024 Transportation Improvement Program

The NEPA MPO recently adopted its 2021-2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).  The TIP identifies the region’s highest priority transportation projects, develops a multi-year program of implementation and identifies available federal and non-federal funding for the programmed project phases.  The TIP shows the estimated cost of each project and a projected schedule for completion of the project.  The TIP covers a four-year period of investment, must be fiscally-constrained, and is updated every two years through a cooperative effort of local, state and federal agencies, including participation by the general public.
