  • Safety
  • Mobility
  • Community & Economic Development

  • Environment  
  • Fiscal Responsibility.

Other criteria are specific to travel modes including:

  • Highways & Bridges
  • Public Transportation
  • Bicycle & Pedestrian
  • System Management & Operations,
  • Goods Movement. 

The resulting scores provide a preliminary basis for ranking project proposals which then undergo further assessment. 

Preliminary Program Development

These preliminary rankings were reviewed and discussed with the TIP Development Committee where changed were made to reflect overall funding considerations, geographic balance, and other factors not specifically captured by the Project Evaluation Criteria. A list of projects recommended for funding, and not recommended, is prepared, and shared with stakeholders and available for public review and comment.

Project List for Public Review

The GTC released the 2023-2027 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Project List for a 30-day comment period from July 15 through August 15, 2022.

An integrated outreach plan will include a combination of methods for people to participate in person and electronically. 

The GTC will consider all public comments received and issue a response, sharing how comments were incorporated or addressed.
