Consistency with Direction2035
Projects included in the TIP are consistent with the goals and objectives of Direction2035. The projects will provide accessibility for all people and goods, enhance the vitality of the region, promote a safe and secure transportation system, and enhance the environment. The following table summarizes the amount of TIP funding and compares the distribution of funding by project type with the Direction2035 investment direction.
Comparison of Capital Funding
The shares of funding by project type are relatively consistent between the TIP and Direction2035. The major exception is in the pavement category, which has 25 percent of the funding in Direction2035 and only about 18 percent in the TIP. It should be noted that the table includes an estimate of roadway operating funding not shown in the TIP. This allows the TIP and Direction2035 project type categories to be directly comparable. The TIP includes operations funding for transit but not for roadways as transit funds are federally funded and must be in the TIP. Roadway operations and maintenance activities are typically funded from state and local sources and not required to be in the TIP.
