The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a staged, multi-year multimodal program of transportation projects consistent with the Augusta Regional Transportation Study (ARTS) area Long Range Transportation Plan.
The ARTS TIP covers a four-year period for the Georgia portion of the study area and a five-year period for the South Carolina part. The ARTS TIP is approved by the ARTS Policy Committee and subsequently approved by the governors of Georgia and South Carolina. The TIP is subject to amendment during the program year. Projects in the ARTS TIP are included in the Georgia and South Carolina State TIPs.
The ARTS TIP includes all transportation projects, or identified phases of a project within the study area, proposed for funding with federal highway and transit funds. The following information is included for each TIP Information for each project includes: description, estimated total cost, amount of federal funds allocated each program year, proposed sources of funding, and responsible implementing agencies. The TIP must be financially constrained for each program year by demonstrating that the identified projects can be implemented using current and proposed revenue sources. In the ARTS TIP, projects are grouped by state (GA SC) and by type of project (road, transit). The TIP also lists projects from the previous TIP that have been implemented, and identifies any significant delays in the implementation of major projects.
