Transportation Improvement Program

LAPCLogo

The LAPC in cooperation with WisDOT, MnDOT, and our transit operators annually develops a four-year transportation improvement program (TIP). The TIP reflects the investment priorities established in the current metropolitan transportation plan as well as all Federal- and State-funded projects and regionally significant projects regardless of funding source.

Coordination with our DOTs and transit agencies for development of the annual TIP begins in May. Because Minnesota approves its State TIP before Wisconsin, the LAPC approves a Minnesota TIP project list in July. The approved list is later incorporated with the listing of Wisconsin projects into the annual TIP document approved in November.

The TIP project list is amended frequently as projects are added/removed or modified to a significant degree. Minor changes, however, may be incorporated into the TIP through an Administrative Modification. The annual TIP and TIP amendments require a 15-day public review and comment period as established in our Public Participation Plan (PPP). The PPP and our TIP document define our TIP Amendment Process.

Minnesota TIP Project List

Because the Minnesota Department of Transportation operates on a different approval schedule than the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the LAPC must approve the Minnesota TIP Project List by the end of July. The Project List for 2023-2026 includes only one transit operations project. This project will be incorporated into the full 2023-2026 TIP document scheduled for approval on November 16, 2022.

Funding Programs for Local Governments

Projects funded with federal and/or state funds or are considered regionally significant that occur in or serve the LAPC planning area are included in the LAPC TIP. The projects are also included in their respective State (Wisconsin or Minnesota) TIP (or STIP). Local governments have access to many federal programs; however, eligibility varies by size of community, attainment status, urban/rural designation, and other characteristics. The following list of programs include those that were established in previous transportation bills as well as new programs established by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), also known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA).

Discretionary Grant Programs

The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) administers competitive discretionary grant programs through its operating administrations (OAs) and Office of the Secretary (OST). Each program office solicits applications and selects projects based on program eligibility, evaluation criteria, and Departmental or program priorities. Discretionary grant programs of interest to our local governments may include but are not limited to:

Formula Grant Programs

Formula grant programs allocate funding to recipients based on formulas set by Congress. USDOT distributes these funds to States, Federally-recognized tribal recipients, and transit agencies. The funds may be further allocated to localities at State, tribal, or agency discretion.

State-Administered Programs

Wisconsin Department of Transportation

Minnesota Department of Transportation

 
Web Map

New with our 2022-2025 TIP is the ability to view our transportation projects in a web map. Only projects whose descriptions provide enough detail to ascertain a location are illustrated.

The web map illustrates the LAPC 2022-2025 TIP Projects listed in our 2022-2025 Transportation Improvement Program. It can be accessed in the Gallery through the Land Information GIS Web App Portal.

The web map will be updated as administrative modifications and amendments are processed.

If you have comments or questions about the projects shown in the web map, please Send Us Your Comments or contact office staff directly.
