Definition & Purpose:

The TIP is the spending and implementation plan for specific transportation improvements in the seven-county area that includes Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Wayne, and Wyoming counties, using federal funds, over at least the four Federal Fiscal Years from adoption. It lists specific projects, the lead agency administering the project, anticipated schedules, costs, and fund-sources for each phase of a project from preliminary engineering, right-of-way acquisition to construction, and inspection. The TIP is usually updated on a three-year cycle.

Although GTC serves a nine-county region, GTC is responsible for developing the TIP for the designated Rochester Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA), which includes all of Monroe County plus the adjacent developed areas of Livingston, Ontario, and Wayne counties.

NYSDOT is responsible for developing the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), including areas outside the MPA. However, GTC and NYSDOT Region-4 work cooperatively to develop the TIP for the seven-county area, which corresponds to NYSDOT Region-4.

The TIP must be consistent with the goals and objectives of the LRTP.

Members of the public, governments and tribal nations, and regulatory agencies and organizations can review and submit comments to GTC on the draft Program, the recommended list of transportation projects, and amendments presented to the GTC Board.

Project Lists

The TIP aims to reflect the priorities and direction of the region. The proposed projects are to be consistent with the goals and objectives identified in the current Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP.) The Genesee-Finger Lakes Region 2045 Plan lists five key themes including Health and Safety; Access and Equity; System Management and Maintenance; Sustainability and Resilience; and Economic Development.

People are encouraged to review the list of committed projects rolling over from current TIP, a list of new projects recommended for funding, and a list of projects unable to be funded. Hard copies are available upon request. The deadline to submit comments is August 15.
