Visualizing the Transportation Improvement Program
NYMTC has posted a visual representation of the project listings proposed for FFYs 2020-2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The visualization was prepared using ArcGIS Online to help you find projects in your area quickly, and to simplify public outreach. The TIP is a prioritized five-year capital program that identifies all proposed federally funded transportation improvement projects in the ten counties of the NYMTC region for federal fiscal years 2020 through 2024. 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. Some locally-funded projects that are in the TIP were also included in the map. To view projects in your area, click on the + or – keys on the map to zoom in.
