Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

As the first four years of the region’s long-range plan implementation, the TIP prioritizes and documents anticipated projects including roads, buses, rail, bicycle and pedestrian improvements. Each project shows a description and the expected schedule and funding. The document is separated into Delaware Statewide, New Castle County and Cecil County specific projects, and is incorporated into the Delaware Capital Transportation Program and Maryland Consolidated Transportation Program. The TIP and submissions are prioritized using an approved Project Prioritization Process.

Throughout the development of the TIP, the community can play an active role in shaping our region’s priority projects.   The public participation process for the TIP will also meet the public participation requirements for MTA’s and DTC’s Program of Projects. The TIP also considers effects upon low income and minority residents.  For more details on participating in the TIP development process, see our schedule.
