    • 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


      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


      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

      c) Goal: To work toward the provision of transportation-related facilities that will

      complement and enhance the current and future transportation network. 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


      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."
