The Erie County Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Public Comment Period Opens May 15th – June 13th


Erie, PA – As a Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the Erie MPO is responsible for developing a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) in partnership with PennDOT and EMTA. The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a short-term work program that lists all regionally significant transportation initiatives that are federally funded to be carried out within the metropolitan planning area of Erie County. The TIP contains lists of projects and associated documentation about the TIP process and project evaluation criteria. The entire TIP is officially updated every two years in Erie County, but it serves as a living document that is constantly being revised and amended with approval of the Erie MPO.

The public is encouraged to provide input and feedback on the Draft 2025-2028 TIP from May 15th to June 13th, 2024. Two public meetings will facilitate this feedback process, one virtually via Microsoft Teams on May 30th from noon-1:00p.m. (accessible at or by dialing +1 323-457-6502 with code 995980079#) and one in person at the Blasco Library’s Admiral Room (160 East Front Street, Erie PA 16507) on May 30th from 4:30-6:00p.m.

The Draft 2025-2028 TIP documents are accessible for review starting May 15th on the Erie County Department of Planning TIP website:
