2014-2018 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

Decisions about transportation investments in metropolitan areas require collaboration and cooperation between different levels of government and between individual jurisdictions. The TIP documents how the Kansas City region prioritizes the limited transportation resources available among the various needs of the region. It includes a staged, five-year list of surface transportation projects proposed for federal, state and local funding within the metropolitan area. Inclusion in the TIP represents a major milestone in the project development process that enables a project to receive and expend federal funds.

Transportation workshop reviews priorities

Workshop0609_0525.jpgOn Monday, June 9, MARC convened several of its transportation modal planning committees at the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center to review projects submitted for federal funding. Commitees reviewed information including costs, scope of projects, modal aspects, safety components, environment impacts, economic development and more.

MARC's transportation programming committees will review projects to determine funding later this summer.

Kansas City Regional Bikeways planning 

MARC is working with regional partners to develop a Regional Bikeway Plan that will establish a vision for high-priority bikeway and trail investments across the metropolitan area. The plan will be completed by December 2014. 

The plan steering committee’s initial goals for the plan are to expand the MetroGreen system where appropriate; develop a new Regional Bikeway Network map that includes not only current bikeway systems but also greenways and planned expansions of the system; and develop a process for identifying high-priority regional bikeway and trail investments.
