The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a prioritized, multi-year program for the implementation of transportation improvement projects in the Franklin region. Any project intended to receive federal transportation funds must, by federal regulation, be listed in an improvement program that includes broad public participation. The TIP is drafted each year and includes detailed project evaluations that take into account need, community support, additional benefits, project readiness, and funding availability. The TIP is an expression of intent to implement the listed projects. A final commitment of funds for each of the projects has not been issued.
