About the IRTIP

The IRTIP identifies and includes transportation projects proposed by government and transportation agencies in the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA) over a four year period. The IRTIP allocates the region’s limited transportation resources among the various capital and operating needs of the Indianapolis MPA based on regional priorities and cooperative input. The IRTIP serves as a schedule of coordinated project implementation among regional agencies; a guide for implementation of other short and long-range plans; and a source of public information about federally funded transportation projects in the MPA.

The IRTIP is updated at least every two years, is fiscally constrained (not just a “wish list”), conforms with the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for air quality, is approved by the MPO and the Governor, and is incorporated, without change, in INDOT’s Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).

Proposed IRTIP Amendments

IRTIP Annual Lists of Obligated Projects

In accordance with Federal requirements, the MPO publishes its “Annual Listing of Federally Obligated Transportation Projects” based on information provided by INDOT. The purpose of the report is to provide to the public, as well as State and local officials, information regarding federal spending on transportation projects within the Indianapolis region, along with a progress report and disclosure of project delivery occurring over a shorter planning period of only one year.
