Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) 2020

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a rolling 6-year plan updated annually with a focus on maintaining the existing transportation network and improving it in a thoughtful, safe manner working within the financial constraints. The TIP covers City roadway, pedestrian, bicycle and other transportation projects.

Note: The City has an existing plan that identifies various future upgrades in pedestrian and bicycle facilities, many of which have been adopted into the TIP.

Each year, public comment and staff input are gathered to inform new proposed additions to the TIP; the City Council makes the final decision on each project's priority.

While I appreciate the bike lane around the Island in one direction, some of us use bikes to commute and need to be able to travel safely in both directions. Downtown, the speed limit is low enough and there are enough stops to mitigate bike travel in the road on the rare occasion there's not a bike lane. But the major thoroughfares (e.g. WMW) are unsafe without bike lanes so those need to be added in the other direction. Please add that to the planning. Thanks.
