Planned Transportation Projects
Transportation improvements scheduled in the city over the next six years are listed in the Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP). The TIP is adopted annually by City Council in June and identifies projects that are currently funded (with federal, state, and/or local grants) and moving forward, as well as planned projects for which city staff are seeking funding.
