The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a product of the ongoing transportation planning process of the Kingsport MTPO. The purpose of the TIP is to identify all transportation projects funded by Federal Title 23 and the Federal Transit Act within the Kingsport area, including streets and highways, transit service and facilities, bicycle and pedestrian facilities and transportation enhancement projects. It is also to ensure coordination of transportation improvements by local, state, and federal agencies.

FY 20-23 TIP

The TIP identifies the regions highest priority transportation projects, develops a multi-year implementation program, and identifies necessary federal and non-federal funding. The TIP covers a four-year time period and is developed at least every three (3) years through a cooperative effort of local, state and federal agencies, including participation by the general public.
