September 4, 2013)
On July 6, 2012, President Obama signed into law P.L. 112-141, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). The NYMTC Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), which covers federal fiscal years (FFYs) 2014-2018, has been built within the context of MAP-21 funding authorizations and it meets the relevant requirements of the federal Metropolitan and Statewide Planning Regulations of February 14, 2007. The FFY 2014 – 2018 TIP satisfies United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) regulation 23 CFR part 450 324, which requires a TIP to be compatible with the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) development, update and approval process.
About the Transportation Improvement Program
The federally-mandated Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) outlines all of the federally-funded transportation projects proposed for the NYMTC area over a five year period. These improvements cover various transportation modes and facilities, including roadways and bridges, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, transit equipment and services, safety improvements and demand management programs. Projects funded through other sources are also identified to provide a more comprehensive picture of proposed transportation improvements in the region. The 2014-2018 TIP was adopted by the Council on September 4, 2013 and approved by the appropriate federal agencies on September 30, 2013.
Anticipated federal funding levels used to develop the TIP were distributed by New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT). NYMTC built the 2014-2018 TIP and is fiscally-constrained to the revised federal funding levels. The TIP will be maintained through TIP actions following the NYMTC TIP Revision Operating Procedures. These procedures document the process by which changes can be made to the NYMTC TIP and comply with the federal transportation metropolitan planning regulation.
When NYMTC updates or revises its TIP or Regional Transportation Plan, a demonstration of transportation conformity under the Clean Air Act of 1990 is required to ensure that transportation investments will maintain air quality milestones for meeting national standard.
