Transportation projects receiving federal funding through 2023
The TIP contains all regionally significant transportation projects that will utilize federal funds in the upcoming four years. Before any surface transportation project can be built in the Duluth area, it must be included in a current TIP that has been approved by the MIC Policy Board.
Far from being a static document, the TIP is literally and figuratively where the rubber meets the road. If listed in the TIP, it means that some of our highest-priority road, transit, and bicycle/pedestrian projects are no longer just a concept. They have been funded and are being planned, designed, and/or built throughout our region.
It includes a dynamic program of projects that are consistent with the transportation priorities of our region, as put forward in our most recent Long Range Transportation Plan.
It is part of the MIC’s role as an MPO to work closely with state and local agencies to prioritize which of the region’s transportation projects and services should receive anticipated federal funds for the next four years.
The cost of needed improvements to the transportation system far exceeds the funding available to address those needs and difficult decisions must be made regarding the use of scarce transportation dollars. For each project that is chosen for construction, many others will not be able to be built.
The long term effect such decisions can have makes it critical that the public be included in a dynamic decision-making process.
