Transportation Improvement Program

Public Comment: DRAFT FY2022-2028 Regional Transportation Improvement Program, August 2 – August 31, 2021

The COMPASS TIP and Communities in Motion plan are specific to Ada and Canyon Counties. In July, the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) solicited feedback on the stateside equivalent of COMPASS’ regional TIP. Since there is some overlap between the statewide and regional TIPs, some projects in Ada and Canyon Counties appear in both.

The COMPASS materials open for public comment now include additional local projects and include the air quality conformity demonstration specific to northern Ada County. We encourage you to review and comment on the COMPASS documents, even if you previously commented on ITD’s, as there are differences. However, where there is overlap, we work with ITD to ensure comments provided are shared with the Boards of Directors of both agencies, regardless of whether they were submitted through the COMPASS or ITD public comment process.

COMPASS seeks public comment on transportation projects in the DRAFT FY2022-2028 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (TIP),  changes to the regional long-range transportation plan, Communities in Motion 2040 2.0, and the DRAFT air quality conformity demonstration for the DRAFT FY2022-2028 TIP and proposed changes to the long-range transportation plan.

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a short-range (7 year) capital improvement program (budget) of transportation projects consistent with federal regulations and area policies and strategies. The TIP lists all projects for which federal funds are anticipated, along with non-federally funded projects that are regionally significant. The TIP represents the transportation improvement priorities of the region and is required by federal law. The list includes roadway and public transit projects. For more information contact Toni Tisdale, (208) 475-2238.

COMPASS produces a regional TIP for Ada and Canyon Counties and updates the document annually. The list of TIP projects must be endorsed by the COMPASS Board. The U.S. Department of Transportation requires that all projects in the TIP be derived from an approved long range transportation plan, meet air quality requirements in Northern Ada County, and be financially constrained to the amount of funds that are expected to be available. The TIP shows the estimated costs and projected construction schedule of transportation projects. The TIP brochure describes in more detail how the TIP is developed. (English/Español)

The Idaho Transportation Department’s Idaho Transportation Investment Program (ITIP) and Ada County Highway District’s Integrated Five-Year Work Plan provide information on additional transportation projects not included in the TIP.

The TIP shows how projects correlate with Communities in Motion (CIM) performance measures. This reporting not only allows a reader to easily see how individual projects help achieve CIM goals, but it also provides additional accountability for the project sponsor and decision-makers, as they must be able to clearly demonstrate the relationship between projects and CIM goals.
