  • Abstract:
    "A Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is the Dubuque Metropolitan Area Transportation Study (DMATS) 4- year financial implementation program listing of transportation improvement projects eligible for Federal funding. It is DMATS transportation investment program, consisting of capital and operating improvements to the Metropolitan Transportation System. The TIP is multi-modal. It includes investments in various modes such as transit, highway, bicycle, and pedestrian facilities. The TIP is the means of implementing the goals and objectives identified in the DMATS Long-Range Transportation Plan. The FFY 2012 - 2015 TIP for the DMATS Metropolitan Area is a four year listing of federal aid eligible transportation projects selected for implementation by the various governmental agencies comprising DMATS, in consultation with, and by approval of the DMATS Policy Board in cooperation with Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin Departments of Transportation. The TIP is prepared annually by the DMATS Policy Board and Technical Advisory Committee. DMATS technical work is supported by staff members from the East Central Intergovernmental Association (ECIA). Prioritization of projects within a project year is done by the implementing agencies with the approval of the Policy Board. Prioritization of Long Range Transportation Plan projects on a year to year basis is done cooperatively between DMATS and the implementing agencies. This document contains projects identified for improvement or construction from the DMATS 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan. Project Selection Criteria The projects included in the TIP were selected using the following criteria: 1) The appropriateness of the particular project in relation to the present DMATS goals as follows: a) Goal: To develop an efficient, integrated, balanced transportation system. This can be summarized as serving and anticipating travel needs made evident by regional land use patterns. This includes multi-modal development and use, facilitated by coordination of organizational effort to improve goods shipment by air, rail, river, and truck. b) Goal: To develop surface transportation facilities. This encompasses the development of a safe, efficient street and highway network; and maintaining access to viable air and rail transportation systems. Transit, bicycles, and pedestrians are encouraged.

This includes development of parking facilities, and ancillary facilities. Also included is the provision of amenities for inter-modal usage, such as ride share lots and bus shelters, to reduce congestion and promote a safe, environmentally sound system. 2) The appropriateness of the particular project in relation to the best available cost and revenue estimates for the next three fiscal years. 3) The input of State, County and City officials, the local transit operators, the private sector, and others as represented through DMATS. 4) Consistency of the transportation projects in the TIP with the air quality standards outlined in the State Implementation Plan and with local land use planning and economic development. Relationship of the TIP to Area Planning and Programming As the primary transportation investment management tool of the DMATS urban planning and programming process, the TIP must reflect the established goals and objectives of the DMATS Long Range Transportation Plan. Applying the criteria described above establishes a link between cost/benefit analysis and planning. Projects are included as the process identifies their feasibility with respect to comparative importance and funding potential. This reinforces the establishment of priorities, as it allows assessment of funding source availability through the out-years of the TIP. All of the projects contained within the TIP are selected from federal aid eligible projects already contained in the DMATS 2031 Long-Range Transportation Plan or have been sponsored and funded by a state DOT."
