IRTIP 2017 Update
It's time to update the Indianapolis Regional Transportation Improvement Program (IRTIP)! The IRTIP is a four-year schedule of transportation projects proposed by government and transportation agencies in the Indianapolis region using Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) funds, Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funds or Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) funds. In addition, other projects that are considered regionally significant (for air quality conformity purposes) are included, regardless of the funding source.
A key objective of the IRTIP is to assist local governments in providing a coordinated transportation system for citizens in this area by ensuring that the limited federal funds available to the area are spent on projects that provide the greatest benefit consistent with the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP).
It's time to update this four-year schedule!
