Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

Home » Our Work

Each year, approximately 150 transportation infrastructure projects, collectively costing more than one billion dollars, are submitted as candidates to receive funding through the Boston Region MPO’s rolling, five-year capital investment program, the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The types of projects that are eligible for TIP funding include intersection improvements, Complete Streets redesigns, bicycle and pedestrian connections, highway reconstruction, transit maintenance, and transit expansion. Typically, approximately $95 million is available in any given year for such projects. Each year, the MPO gathers project ideas, evaluates and prioritizes the candidate projects, and then selects which projects will receive the region’s share of federal and state roadway funding. The vision established in the MPO’s Long-Range Transportation Plan, Charting Progress to 2040, guides the project selection process. To better understand the TIP process, explore these pages:

FFYs 2018–22 TIP Amendment Three: Public Comment Period

On January 18, 2018, the MPO board voted to release for public review a draft amendment to the FFYs 2018–22 TIP. All of the changes proposed concern highway projects in FFY 2018. Amendment Three adds two new MassDOT-prioritized projects and incorporates cost increases for two projects (including the MPO target-funded project #600518: Hingham Intersection Improvements at Derby Street, Whiting Street [Route 53], and Gardner Street). For a summary of the changes proposed as part of Amendment Three, please refer to this table.

The public comment period for TIP Amendment Three begins Thursday, January 25, 2018, and extends for 30 days until 5:00 PM on Friday, February 23, 2018.

Amendments to the Current TIP (FFYs 2018–22)

Amendment Two

On January 18, 2018, the MPO board voted to approve Amendment Two to the FFYs 2018–22 TIP. Amendment Two incorporates several changes to the MBTA capital investment program, and reflects what the MBTA expects to receive in Federal Transit Administration (FTA) formula funds in each year of the TIP. The most significant changes in funding occur in FFY 2018 because of funding carried over from the original FFY 2017 funding allocation. There are six MBTA projects added into the five-year plan for the TIP; these projects were already planned to be undertaken as part of the Commonwealth’s Capital Investment Plan (CIP), and adding them to the TIP dedicates federal funding for their implementation.These tables show overall funding in each MBTA capital investment program over the five years of the TIP, and specific projects currently planned for implementation throughout FFYs 2018–22.

Adjustment Two

On December 7, 2017, the MPO board voted to approve an adjustment to the FFYs 2018–2022 TIP. Adjustment Two incorporates additional funds that the FTA granted to the MetroWest Regional Transit Authority (MWRTA). In addition, as a result of an audit by the FTA, MWRTA transferred some funding from capital programs to operating programs. For a summary of the changes endorsed as part of Adjustment Two, please refer to this table.

Amendment One

On November 16 , 2017, the MPO board voted to approve an amendment to the Federal Fiscal Years (FFYs) 2018–22 TIP. Amendment One includes changes and additions to the highway programming in FFYs 2018–22 and the transit programming in FFY 2018.The changes in the highway programming are primarily associated with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) bridge maintenance program. The additions to the transit program are primarily associated with new grants awarded by the MassDOT Rail and Transit Division under its annual competitive process, the Community Transit Grant Program.

For a summary of the changes to the highway program endorsed as part of Amendment One, please refer to this table.
