HRTPO DRAFT Transportation Improvement Program Open For Public Comment
The Heartland Regional Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO) is now requesting public comments on the DRAFT Transportation Improvement Program for Fiscal Years 2017-2018 through 2021-2022. The comment period begins May 10, 2017 and will end June 9, 2017. HRTPO staff will also be holding a workshop at the Hardee County Library on June 5, from 2pm - 4pm.

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a comprehensive list of federal, state and locally funded transportation projects. All modes of transportation are included in the TIP. This includes transit, roadways, bridges, aviation, seaport, rail and commuter rail, bicycle facilities, pedestrian provisions, and enhancement projects like landscaping and greenways. Produced annually, the TIP is known as a short-range plan because it allocates resources and dollars over each upcoming 5-year period by project phase.

  • Lists priority projects from the LRTP
  • Provides 5-year implementation schedule
  • Allocates state and federal funds for capital projects
  • Becomes part of the Statewide TIP (STIP)
