The six-year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a short-range planning document that is annually updated based on needs and policies identified in Arlington's Transportation 2035 Plan (transportation element of the City's Comprehensive Plan). It represents Arlington’s current complete list of needed projects and programs for the next six years. The document also identifies secured or reasonably expected revenues and expenditures for each of the projects included in the TIP. Typically, projects listed in the first three years of the document are shown as having secured funding while projects in the last three years can be partially or completely unfunded.
The City of Arlington took a new approach to developing the TIP for 2020 and beyond; by looking at the plan holistically over a 20-year horizon, overlaying where growth and development is likely to occur or occurring, targeting traffic issues, installing sidewalks and trails, and continuing our plan to repair and repave roadways that are in need.
