Iowa Region 9 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) (FFY 2017-2020) - Rural Scott County and Muscatine County, Iowa
The goal of transportation planning in Region 9 is to develop a transportation system that will provide for the safe, efficient, and economical movement of people and goods in a manner that encourages harmonious community interaction and enhances the aesthetic and ecological features of our physical environment.
The Region 9 FFY 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a result of a comprehensive, coordinated, and continuing transportation planning process. The program is divided into two primary sections, the first containing the street/highway improvement projects including enhancement projects, and the second incorporating the public transit improvement projects.
Project priority is given to the 2017 Annual Element of the TIP. Projects in any of the annual elements can be moved from one year to another with a minor revision to this document due to changes in needs. There are adequate federal funds to conduct the program outlined in the initial annual element. Projects in future annual elements are financially feasible, based on expected federal funds to be made available to the region for programming, or are listed as placeholders prior to the ranking process.
Programming is the transition of projects from planning and design to construction/ implementation. The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a listing of those roadway, public transit and other related transportation projects that are expected to be initiated during the current federal fiscal year and the next three subsequent federal fiscal years, and will be financed in whole or in part with federal funds in the Region 9 area. The Region 9 area includes all of Muscatine County and the non-urban portions of Scott County. Listed are transportation improvements receiving federal funding, as outlined in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. The federally-funded projects address general needs outlined in the Long Range Transportation Plan for the Region 9 Area.
