The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a multi-year program of transportation projects that implements the products of the planning process described in New Visions 2040, CDTC's long-range regional transportation plan. Federal regulations require that transit, highway and other transportation improvement projects within the Capital District metropolitan area be included in this TIP if these projects are to be eligible for federal capital or operating funding from the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. The program should also include, for informational purposes, non-federally funded projects and New York State Thruway Authority projects located in the region.
By law, CDTC must update its Transportation Improvement Program every four years as an integral element of a new Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). New York's practice has been to submit a new STIP no less than every two years, to keep the program current. While CDTC's practice is to maintain a five-year TIP, the federally-required STIP covers only the first four years of the period.
CDTC's current TIP was adopted in June 2019 to cover the five-year period from October 1, 2019 to September 30, 2024.
Note: Summary tables and project listings in the TIP are not included in the online document. They are updated frequently and can be accessed below.
