Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

NIRPC’s Transportation Improvement Program is a four-year program of multi-modal transportation investments proposed by local, regional and state partners in our region. Funding for the investments programmed is a mix of Federal Highway Administration, Federal Transit Administration, Indiana Department of Transportation, and local matching funds. The programmed investments assist local and regional partners in providing a multi-modal transportation system for the people of Northwestern Indiana. Investments are evaluated to help prioritize limited federal funds available to the area and are intended to yield the maximum benefit while also remaining consistent with the goals of the Long-Range Transportation Plan.

The 2024-2028 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) was available for public comment from March 6, 2023 through April 7, 2023. NIRPC’s Executive Board adopted the TIP at the July 20, 2023 meeting. (subject to final air quality conformity determination)
