Review and Approval of the FY 2025-FY 2029 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)-Draft

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) contains the funded Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Five-Year Work Program and the local jurisdiction Capital Improvement Programs (CIP). The TIP implements the projects contained in the 2045 Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). Projects are required to be shown in the TIP for inclusion into the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) and subsequent funding through joint participation agreements.

The 30-day public comment period required for the Draft TIP ends June 6, 2024. The draft was required by federal regulations to be submitted for review by May 15, 2024 (it was submitted by the MPO on May 10, 2024) and has been reviewed by the Florida Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration, and the Florida Transit Administration. Comments have already been received by the Florida Department of Transportation and addressed.

On March 28, 2024, the MPO's Technical Advisory Committee, Citizens Advisory Committee, and the Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee conducted public meetings and reviewed a preliminary draft of the List of Priority Projects (LOPP) that is contained in the TIP as Appendix C. The Committees voted to recommend the MPO Board approve the addition of intersection improvements for US41 (Broad Street) and CR 576 (Ayers Road) in Hernando County, and US 41 (Florida Avenue) and CR 491 (N Lecanto Highway) in Citrus County.

Additionally, the Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee voted to recommend the MPO Board switch the priority of Projects #7 and #14 on the Transportation Alternatives list. Priority #7 is proposed to be the Good Neighbor Trail Rehabilitation from Jefferson Street to Jasmine in Hernando County, and Priority #14 is proposed to be the Trailhead/Parking Lot near the Suncoast Parkway II along US 98 in Citrus County.
