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 TIP contains lists of projects and associated documentation about the TIP process and project evaluation criteria. The official TIP is updated every two years in Pennsylvania, but it serves as a living document that is constantly being revised and amended.
All projects listed in the TIP are fiscally constrained to annual funding the Erie MPO receives. The projects in the TIP are multi-modal, including traditional highway/bridge and transit projects, along with bicycle/pedestrian and freight-related improvements that are federally funded or regionally significant.
What is not in the Erie MPO TIP:
- Locally funded projects on municipal roads
- Liquid Fuels or Local Use Fee funded projects
- PennDOT’s state funded maintenance projects
- Specific design details about each project
