On September 15, 2016, the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) acted to approve the 2017-20 Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP), Amendment #1 to the 2016 Metropolitan Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (2016 MTP/SCS), and Air Quality Conformity Analysis.
Next, Caltrans will circulate for public review the Federal Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (FSTIP), the larger document that contains the MTIP. That review will begin October 10 and close October 31, 2016.
The federally required Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is known as the Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP) in the Sacramento Region. It is a short-term listing of surface transportation projects that receive federal funds, are subject to a federally required action, or are regionally significant. Apart from some improvements to the region’s airports and the Port of Sacramento, all regionally significant transportation projects and federally funded capital projects are part of the MTIP.
