Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP)
The Harrisonburg-Rockingham Metropolitan Planning Organization (HRMPO) Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a prioritized, fiscally-constrained, list of federally funded and/or regionally significant transportation projects and improvements within the HRMPO area for the next four years. The program includes projects for all modes of surface transportation including highways and streets, public transportation and walking and bicycling. The projects that will be considered for TIP funding will come from the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) projects by priority. The TIP is updated annually and includes clearly identified funding sources.
The HRMPO works with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to approve the Highway portion of the TIP and the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) to approve the Transit portion of the TIP. Each TIP is adopted only once every four years and it can be amended or modified administratively to account for changes in funding or project needs. View the Highway and Transit TIPs below.
Current Highway and Transit TIP
MPO staff modified the TIP to add explanatory language about the TIP’s relationship to other MPO and state planning documents, as well as combining the highway and transit project tracking documents. The modified TIP is intended to be more accessible to the general reader, in addition to meeting the MAP-21 requirements. Appendices A and B include Amendments and Administratvie Modifications for the Highway and Transit TIPs respectively. Appendix C contains a USERS GUIDE.
The FY2018-2021 TIP includes required MAP-21's Performance Based Planning and Programming documentation regarding the Safety Performance measurement targets (Appendix D), Transit Asset Management targets (Appendix E), Pavement and Bridge Condition (Appendix F), and System Performance (Appendix G). We will add additional performance measurement targets to the TIP as the CTB sets them and the HRMPO Policy Board concurs, or sets its own.
In the latest Amendment on Dec, 19, 2019, “Appendix A: Highway TIP Amendments and Administrative Adjustments” on page 22 in the document, amends the TIP to include Prelimanry Engineering and Right-of-Way funding for a project from the I-81 Corridor Improvement Plan. The project will widen I-81 to three travel lanes in each direction from Exit 243 to 248 (Harrisonburg).
Additionally, please find the FY 2018 - 2021 Highway TIP Administrative Modification for Updated Federal Fiscal Year 2020 Maintenance Federal Projections. The modification is also included under the “Appendix A: Tip Amendments and Administrative Adjustments – Highway” section of the document.
