South Western Region Transportation Improvement Program
The South Western Region Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is four-year financially constrained listing of all federal funded and regionally significant transportation projects. The TIP is developed in cooperation with federal and state agencies, including the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT), area municipalities, and transit operators in the region.
The TIP is multimodal and includes funding for transit, highway, and bicycle/pedestrian projects, among others. The TIP also serves as the vehicle for implementation of goals and objectives identified in regional Long Range Transportation Plan. The TIP is part of the Statewide TIP (STIP), and is a living document that adjusts to project changes with input from the SWR Metropolitan Planning Organization (SWRMPO).
The 2015-2018 TIP was endorsed by the SWRMPO on October 23, 2014 following a public comment period, and approved by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on January 21, 2015, as part of the larger STIP.
