Transportation Improvement Program

 TIP Amendments

  • Roll Forward TIP Amendments – The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is requesting that Forward Pinellas, in its role as the Metropolitan Planning Organization, approve the attached Annual Roll-Forward Amendment to the adopted TIP to reconcile year one of the TIP with the FDOT Work Program. The FY 2017/18 through 2021/22 TIP will take effect on October 1, 2017.  Until then, the FY 2016/17 through 2020/21 TIP will be used by FHWA and FTA for authorization of funds. This is a routine annual process to assist Forward Pinellas in identifying projects that were not committed in the previous Fiscal Year (2016/17) and have automatically rolled into FY 2017/18 of the FDOT Work Program.  This amendment ensures that year one of the FY 2017/18 – 2021/22 TIP, adopted by the Board on June 14, 2017, matches year one of the FDOT Work Program.  The affected projects submitted for approval are listed in the attached Roll Forward Report and letter from FDOT requesting the Annual Roll-Forward Amendment to the TIP.
