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.
