The Metro COG TIP includes projects funded by the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) and its associated administrations. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) provide funding for roadways and trails, and public transit projects respectively. The Metro COG TIP includes basic project information such as the location, type of improvement, length, anticipated cost estimates, proposed funding sources, and schedule for each phase of federally funded projects. Non-federally funded, local projects are shown with less-detailed listings that provide information.
Federal legislation requires a TIP be updated every four years however, Metro COG updates the TIP annually. After approval by the Metro COG Policy Board, the TIP is forwarded for approval by the governors of Minnesota and North Dakota (or their representatives) and is incorporated, by reference or verbatim, into the respective State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The FHWA and FTA review STIPs for conformity with federal transportation laws.
