Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

This process has concluded for 2021

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 financial constraints. The TIP covers City roadway, pedestrian, bicycle and other transportation projects.

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

Each year, public comment and staff input are gathered to inform new proposed additions to the TIP; then the City Council makes the final decision on each project's priority. Projects would be implemented between 2022-2027.

You can learn more about the TIP on this page and then post your comment or add a note to the interactive map (comments received by April 16 will be included in the materials for the May 4 public hearing). Some public comments may fall outside the scope of the TIP - please check the list below to see who else you might need to contact:

  • For general public works service requests (e.g. potholes, missing signs) please use our online tool.
  • For traffic enforcement issues (e.g. speeding, parking) please contact the MIPD.
  • For I-90 operational issues, contact WSDOT.
  • For Light Rail construction issues, contact Sound Transit.
