Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)
The Permian Basin MPO, working cooperatively with its member agencies, develops a work program of transportation projects known as the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP lists projects developed through a cooperative, comprehensive, and continuing transportation planning process. The projects identified in the TIP must have a funding source and be listed in the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). The TIP is a short-range planning document that lists the transportation projects of the two cities, three counties, MOUTD, and the TxDOT Odessa District.
The purposes of the TIP include:
To identify improvements recommended for advancement during the four- year period;
To identify transportation improvement priorities for both highway and transit facilities and operations;
To provide realistic estimates of total costs and identified revenues for the program period; and
To reflect a cooperative, comprehensive, and continuing transportation planning process.
Funding for transportation improvements comes from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Transit Administration (FTA), TxDOT, and local entities.
