The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a schedule of transportation improvements in the MORPC transportation planning area (Franklin and Delaware counties, Violet and Bloom townships in Fairfield County, and Etna Township and Pataskala in Licking County). The TIP includes improvements to highways, public transit, bikeways, pedestrian facilities, bridges, traffic signals and other aspects of transportation systems. It also includes planning and engineering studies that may lead to construction in later years. The TIP considers effects upon low-income and minority residents and air quality.

Although the TIP covers a four-year period, it is typically updated (completely revised and adopted) every two years. This allows for a smoother transition between the expiring TIP and updated TIP and ensures the region is continually meeting requirements for public involvement, air quality, environmental justice and fiscal constraint.
MORPC adopted the TIP for State Fiscal Years (SFY) 2016-2019 on May 14, 2015. It became effective on July 1, 2015, following approval by the Governor and the U.S. Department of Transportation. Below are links to the final TIP documents.
The charts below summarize $2.1 billion programmed for SFY 2016-2019.
Paper copies of the SFY 2016-2019 TIP are available at MORPC's office, 111 Liberty Street, Suite 100, Columbus, OH 43215, by calling 614.228.2663, or at all branches of the Columbus Metropolitan Library and the main libraries in Delaware, Licking, Fairfield, and Franklin counties.
ODOT, local governments, public transit and other agencies, with the involvement area residents, cooperatively identified priorities for the update of the TIP, including the use of MORPC-attributable funds. The public participation process for the TIP also met the public participation requirements for COTA's and the Delaware Area Transit Agency's (DATABus's) program of projects. The Final Draft TIP was available for public review and comment from March 23 to April 21, 2015, including an open house on April 7 with a presentation.
