2020-2024 Transportation Improvement Program
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), updated every two years, includes proposed transportation projects and funding for Columbus and Bartholomew County. The FY 2020-2024 TIP was approved by the Policy Board on May 13 and replaced the current TIP on July 1. Projects include road construction, bridge rehabilitation and replacement, People Trail connections, transit funding, and other transportation-related projects.
The TIP lists all transportation projects that use federal transportation dollars as well as transportation projects of regional significance, regardless of funding source. Both INDOT projects in Bartholomew County and locally-sponsored projects are included to insure coordination among agencies. The TIP is regularly amended by the Policy Board to allow project revisions and additions.
The TIP serves several purposes, including:
- Implementation of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan
- Keeping the public informed of changes to the transportation network
- Establishing a schedule for transportation projects
- Providing an overview of project costs
