2022-2026 Transportation Improvement Program
The 2022-2026 TIP was approved by the Policy Board on May 10, 2021, and went into into effect on July 15, 2021. Projects include road construction, bridge rehabilitation and replacement, transit funding, and other transportation-related projects. Updated every two years, the TIP includes proposed transportation projects and funding for Columbus and Bartholomew County for the 2022-2026 period. The fifth year includes illustrative projects that are expected to be programmed in the next TIP update.
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
