Other TIP Issues Regional Significance/Interest Timely Project Delivery Limited/Uncertain Funding Conformity 4
Direction for Project Selection 5 New Approach Needed MAP-21 Limited Funding Project Delivery
Staff Proposal Principles: –Strong links to 2040 RTP –Address Regional Interest –“Right-size” review and evaluation Approach: –Programmatic Investments: target specific system deficiencies –Major Project Investments: high-cost/ high- benefit projects 6
Programmatic Investments Low/lower cost activities Low federal “overhead” –Exempt from conformity –Limited environmental documentation (CEs) Use benefit/cost-effectiveness thresholds for selection Funding allocations/targets 7
Programmatic Investments – Example Ideas Safety: Access Mgmt (medians/intersections) in high-crash locations State of Good Repair: Rehab/Recon off- system principal arterials/freight network Freight: Improved intersection geometry on designated intermodal connectors Bike/Ped: Missing sidewalk access to high-frequency fixed route transit 8
Programmatic Investments – Example Ideas 9 Safety 1Access Mgmt 2Complete Streets 3Freeway Crash Hot Spots 4etc. Congestion 1Incident Mgmt 2Signal Coord. on Frontage Roads/Top 100/Parallel Corridors 3etc. Asset Mangement/SOGR 1Rehab/Recon - Off-Sys. Principal Arterials/Key Freight Network 2etc.
Programmatic Investments – Example Ideas 10 Economic Competitiveness 1Freight - Intermodal Connector Intersections 2Livable Centers 3Bike/Ped Connections to Transit 4 etc. Environment 1Programmatic Mitigation 2Clean Vehicles 3 etc.
Programmatic Investments - Process 1.Policy Council approves program with annual funding target 2.Applications accepted and reviewed for eligibility and performance 3.Projects meeting performance criteria programmed in TIP based on readiness 4.Annual letting schedule confirms “next year” of implementation 11
Major Project Investments Address most/all RTP goals Costs and delivery may exceed TIP timeframe High degree of leverage Higher level of scrutiny = More extensive application 12
Major Project Investments – Example Projects Uptown busway/TC IH 69/IH 610 interchange US 59 upgrade to IH 69 New regional thoroughfares (McHard Rd) Transit component of major joint- development project Freight-rail double tracking 13
