The annual Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is available for public review until August 1, 2017.
The Bonneville Metropolitan Planning Organization (BMPO) TIP is a short-range five-year program of highway and transit projects for the Bonneville metropolitan area. It is a compilation of projects from various federal, state and local funding programs. The TIP is fiscally constrained which means the funding source for a project must be identified and anticipated to be available for completion of the project.
Under the requirements of the Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration, BMPO has the responsibility to develop an annual TIP for the urbanized area.
BMPO is an agency designated by the Governor of Idaho to conduct a continuing, comprehensive, and cooperative transportation planning process in the urbanized area. The organization is under the direction of elected officials from the cities of Ammon, Idaho Falls, Iona, Ucon, and the urbanized portions of Bonneville County and Targhee Regional Public Transportation Authority (TRPTA), in conjunction with the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD).
The proposed FY 2018 TIP will be available for public review during normal business hours (M-F, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.) at the BMPO office located at 1810 W. Broadway, Suite 15 in Idaho Falls.
The document is also available on the BMPO website. Comments will be taken from July 3 through August 1, 2017 via phone at (208) 612-8530 or email at [email protected]. If requested, a public hearing will be held.
This publication specifically satisfies the Federal Transit Administration’s Program of Projects requirements. The proposed FY 2017 TIP will be the final program unless amended.
