The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a schedule of transportation improvement projects important to the MORPC transportation planning area of: Delaware and Franklin counties; Bloom and Violet townships in Fairfield County; New Albany, Pataskala and Etna Township in Licking County; and Jerome Township in Union County. Approximately $1.9 billion in federal, state and local funds will be used between July 2021 and June 2024.
The TIP shows transportation improvements such as highway, public transit, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, bridge and other projects that have undergone a federally required air quality conformity analysis. The TIP also includes engineering studies expected to lead to construction in later years. This process also is being used to meet the public participation requirements for the Central Ohio Transit Authority’s (COTA’s) and Delaware County Transit’s programs of projects.
