Public Comment Opportunities for Proposed Project Funding Recommendations, Amendments to Transportation Improvement Program, and Amendments to the Metropolitan Transportation Plan
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization (IMPO) is
the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization for Central Indiana. The IMPO creates and implements short and
long range plans to advance the region’s goals in transportation, economic
development, housing, safety, sustainability, and other quality of life issues.
The IMPO is also responsible for tracking and distributing certain
transportation funds for roads, transit, trails, and other means of moving
people and goods around Central Indiana. The IMPO invites you to be part of the regional transportation process including through review and comment on the following projects and proposals.
Recommended Projects for IMPO-Managed Funding
Among other tasks, the IMPO tracks and distributes funds
through a program known as the
Transportation Improvement Program (IRTIP)
or TIP for short. The TIP is a
four-year plan for Central Indiana infrastructure. Depending on the type of
project, the TIP tracks, schedules, and funds projects in Central Indiana
based on regional priorities and cooperative input from communities. In
addition to tracking funds, each year the IMPO receives approximately $48
million in funding to distribute directly through the TIP and help fund
transportation projects across the region.
Between September 1, 2022 and October 28, 2022 the IMPO hosted a call for projects and accepted applications from local government agencies for funding for projects that will go to a local letting (bid on for construction) no later than June 2026. This call for projects will award approximately $47M for transportation projects across the region. The IMPO received 59 project applications from 17 local agencies totaling $183 million in requested funds. The attached recommendation includes funding for 16 projects from 7 LPAs totaling $46.7M. The IMPO Transportation Policy Committee is being asked to review the recommended project list and vote on authorizing IMPO staff to provide funding to the list of recommended projects. This item is available for public review and comment between January 31 and February 14.

The IMPO's transportation committees regularly reviews proposed amendments to the Transportation Improvement Program. All projects in the 2022-2025 IRTIP can be viewed on the Indianapolis MPO’s online TIP database, MiTIP (http://mitip.indympo.org).

Proposed Amendments to the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP)
The MPO's Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) guides the area's metropolitan transportation systems over the next 20 years. With the help of transportation planners, engineers, elected officials, and the public, the plan ensures facilities and services required to support the mobility needs of the regional community and its future growth are anticipated and available. On February 15, 2023 the IMPO Policy Committee will consider an amendment to the MTP. This item is available for public review and comment between January 30 and February 13.
