FY23-26 Transportation Improvement Program Call for Projects
The Kingsport Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization (MTPO) is in the process of developing a new Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for fiscal years 2023-2026. The TIP is a four-year financially constrained priority list of projects within the MTPO planning area funded with federal, state, and local dollars. This is the opportunity to submit potential projects to be funded with Federal Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) funds. Most projects require a 20 percent local match and shall be sponsored by a governmental entity that can demonstrate a financial commitment to the project. Completed applications must be received by the MTPO no later than May 6, 2022. To be eligible for funding, projects must be included in the 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). The draft 2045 LRTP is currently out for public review and can be viewed at www.kingsport2045lrtp.com. Lists of projects can be found in Table 38/Page 90-91 and Table 42/Page 106 (illustrative/vision projects are shown in Figure 74/Page 120). Click here for the TIP Project Application.
