NEPA Metropolitan Planning Organization
(NEPA MPO)

Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

Federal regulations require the Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance as the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Carbon, Monroe, Pike and Schuylkill Counties, to develop and maintain a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).  The TIP identifies the region’s highest priority transportation projects, develops a multi-year program of implementation and identifies available federal and non-federal funding for the programmed project phases.  The TIP shows the estimated cost of each project and a projected schedule for completion of the project.  The TIP covers a four-year period of investment, must be fiscally-constrained, and is updated every two years through a cooperative effort of local, state and federal agencies, including participation by the general public.

Extensive public outreach is conducted during the development of the TIP, and public comments are considered fully in the development of the program. A detailed discussion of the NEPA MPO’s public outreach activities are detailed in the Public Involvement Plan found here.

The NEPA MPO held a 30-day public comment period on the draft 2019-2022 TIP from June 15, 2018 to July 17, 2018.

A public hearing was held on Tuesday, July 17, 2018 at 9:30 AM at the Monroe County Transportation Authority located at 134 MCTA Drive, Swiftwater, PA 18370.  Additional meeting locations that had remote access to the public meeting are listed below.

Carbon County Courthouse Annex, 3rd Floor, 2 Hazard Square, Jim Thorpe, PA
Pike County Administration Building, 506 Broad St., Milford, PA
Schuylkill Transportation System, Union Station, 1 Progress Circle, Pottsville, PA

Following the public hearing on July 17, 2018, the NEPA MPO Technical Planning Committee and Policy Board held a joint business meeting and adopted the 2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Program.  Following adoption, the TIP and related documents will be submitted to PennDOT for inclusion in the 2019-2022 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
