Transportation Improvement Program

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) identifies the surface transportation projects and activities to be funded in the NFRMPO area over a four year time period. The TIP includes roadway, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian improvements that are federally funded or regionally significant. Learn more about the TIP on the TIP Fact Sheet.

The FY 2022-2025 TIP was adopted by the NFRMPO Planning Council on May 6, 2021. The TIP became effective upon incorporation into the Statewide TIP (STIP) maintained by CDOT on July 1, 2021. The TIP includes projects selected from an approved call for projects process held in 2018.

The July 2021 TIP Amendment is open for public comment from July 14, 2021 through August 13, 2021. For more information, view the Public Comment Opportunities webpage.

TIP Amendments and Modifications

Changes to the TIP are made in the form of amendments and modifications, which are regularly completed to ensure transportation project funding accuracy. Amendments to the TIP are necessary to facilitate project implementation, identify changes in funding and scheduling, and add new or delete completed projects. The NFRMPO forwards TIP amendments to CDOT upon approval at the appropriate organizational level, as described below. Amendments approved by the Council are accompanied by a Resolution of Adoption. Subsequently, each administrative modification will be provided for informational purposes to both TAC and Planning Council. Any member may request Planning Council review of any action taken by NFRMPO staff or the TAC. The two types of TIP changes are described below.

Policy Amendments
Policy Amendments require TAC review and Planning Council approval for all CMAQ, STBG, TA funded and Air Quality Significant Projects. Examples of Air Quality Significant Projects include:

  • Adding at least two (2) lane miles or completing a regional connection along a regionally significant corridor (RSC);
  • Adding a new intersection on principal arterials or above;
  • Adding new interchanges or grade separated intersections;
  • Major improvements to existing interchanges, excluding drainage improvements and ramp widening;
  • Regional transit projects on fixed guideways that offer a significant alternative to regional highway travel;
  • Addition or deletion of major bus routes with 3,000 transit patrons per day, taking into account existing service levels.

The following items require a Policy Amendment:

  1. Any project, outside of a CDOT STIP funding pool, added to the TIP using federal funds including CMAQ, STBG or TA funds, or if the project is an Air Quality Significant Project (see examples above).
  2. Any project that has all Federal funding removed or is deleted from the TIP.
  3. The addition or deletion of $5M or more in federal or state funds for any project.
  4. A change in funding sources from local/state to include any amount of federal funds.
  5. A change in the total amount of a CDOT STIP pool by $5M or more in state or federal funding.
  6. Any major change in the scope of a project. A major scope change is defined as any sponsor-directed alteration that requires a modification in a project’s activity, location, or schedule which triggers a review of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process or air quality analysis. Common scope changes are: (1) engineering change, (2) quantity change, (3) location change, and (4) schedule change. Specifically, any schedule changes that might impact the TIP’s air quality conformity as the completion date of a regionally significant project would occur in a different time frame than that modeled by APCD.

Policy Amendments will be processed according to the following schedule:

  • Amendments will be processed every other month, including January, March, May, July, September, and November.
  • The deadline to submit an Amendment request is 5:00 pm on the first business day of that month.
  • The 30-day Public Comment period for TIP Amendments will open when the next TAC meeting packet is released, one week prior to the TAC meeting.
  • TIP Amendments will go to TAC and Council once each for Action. Council adoption of the TIP Amendment will be contingent on public comments received during any portion of the 30-day Public Comment period occurring after the Council meeting.

Administrative Modifications

The following changes are processed through TIP Modifications:

  1. A change between federal funding sources.
  2. A change in project funding less than $5M of state or federal funding, and does not change the scope of the project.
  3. A change in local funding of any amount which does not completely remove local funding or change the scope of the project.
  4. A transfer of funds between project years, with concurrence of Project Sponsors, and not impacting air quality conformity.
  5. A change of less than $5M in the total amount of a CDOT STIP pool in state or federal funding.
  6. Changes in the projects included in a CDOT STIP pool due to Transportation Commission action, including a change in the state resource allocation.
  7. Addition or deletion of new projects which are not federally funded or air quality significant.
  8. Minor scope changes which do not meet the criteria of a major scope change and do not change the project type.

Administrative Modifications will be processed within two weeks of receipt. Processed Modifications are posted to the NFRMPO TIP webpage at least monthly. Each quarter, processed Modifications from the previous three months are provided to the TAC and Planning Council for informational purposes.
