TIP Process The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a result of the comprehensive, coordinated and continuing (3C) transportation planning process within the Quad City Urbanized Area and Region 9 rural planning area. The program includes the roadway, trail and transit projects.
Public input opportunities are provided throughout the TIP process. All Transportation Technical and Policy Committee meetings are open to the public. Mailings for these meetings are sent to the Committee members, the Regional Transportation Advisory Group (RTAG), and the media. Membership includes elected officials, DOT and Corps of Engineers representatives, public and private transit representatives, local citizens, air and rail representatives, representatives of the disabled community, representatives of the elderly, environmental and historic preservation groups, and local engineering and planning staff. Any individual who requests a meeting notice is placed on the RTAG list. In addition, an official public participation process has been adopted by the Regional Transportation Policy Committee and is closely adhered to by the Bi-State Regional Commission staff.

tip-urban-2013-2016.pdf (13020.3 KB) Quad Cities Urban Transportation Improvement Program FFY2013-16 - Adopted June 26, 2012
The urban Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a summary of roadway, trail, public transit and related projects that are expected to be initiated during the next four years and will be financed in whole or in part with federal funds. The four-year program is a result of requirements outlined in the 2005 Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act (SAFETEA-LU).
Also included for informational purposes are some street improvements along major roadways (collector, arterial or freeway classification) which will be funded with state and/or local funds. The TIP is comprised of four Annual Elements, which include summaries of projects to be implemented each year during the four-year period. These projects have been derived from the 2040 Quad City MPO Long Range Transportation Plan, which was adopted by the Bi-State Regional Commission in June 2011. This plan is reaffirmed annually by the Bi-State Regional Commission. Projects have been identified through studies, conducted as part of the Congestion Management Process (CMP), which specifically considers system efficiency and less-capital-intensive solutions to transportation problems. Project priority is given to the Annual Element of the TIP. Projects in any of the annual elements can be moved from one year to another with a minor revision to this document due to changes in needs.

reg9-tip-13-16.pdf (3079.7 KB) Region 9 Transportation Improvement Program FY 2013-2016 - FINAL June 2012
The goal of transportation planning in Region 9 is to develop
a transportation system which will provide for the safe, efficient, and
economical movement of people and goods in a manner that encourages harmonious
community interaction and enhances the aesthetic and ecological features
of our physical environment.
The Region 9 FFY 2013-2016 Transportation Improvement Program
(TIP) is a result of a comprehensive, coordinated, and continuing transportation
planning process. The program is divided into two primary sections, the first
containing the street/highway improvement projects including enhancement
projects and the second incorporating the public transit improvement projects.
Project priority is given to the 2013 Annual Element of the
TIP. Projects in any of the annual elements can be moved from one year to
another with a minor revision to this document due to changes in needs. There
are adequate federal funds to conduct the program outlined in the initial
Annual Element. Projects in future annual elements are financially feasible,
based on expected Federal funds to be made available to the region for programming,
or are listed as placeholders prior to the ranking process.
Programming is the transition of projects from planning and
design to construction/ implementation. The Transportation Improvement Program
(TIP) is a listing of those roadway, public transit and other related transportation
projects which are expected to be initiated during the current federal fiscal year
and the next three subsequent federal fiscal years and which will be financed in whole
or in part with federal funds in the Region 9 area. The Region 9 area includes
all of Muscatine County and the non-urban portions of Scott County. Listed
are transportation improvements receiving federal funding, as outlined in
the 2005 Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act (SAFETEA-LU). The Federally funded projects address general
needs outlined in the Long Range Transportation Plan for the Region
Programming of Other Funds
American Reinvestment and Recovery Act 2009: From time to time, there are other federal programs requested to be contained in the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). On February 17, 2009, the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) was signed into law. Transportation funds were allocated nationally to the States From Illinois and Iowa, ARRA funds were subsequently suballocated to the Quad Cities Metropolitan area for roadway and transit projects and to Region 9 for roadways. Funds were stipulated to follow transportation federal-aid regulations and be placed in the FY09 TIP. Eligible roadway projects are required to be on Federal-Aid route and all highway projects would be let through their respective state, whether a project was sponsored locally or on the state system. Funding to the metro areas are required to be obligated within one year or by March 2010.
