The Commission has prepared a draft 2023-2026 regional transportation improvement program (TIP). The TIP is a listing of all arterial highway, public transit, and other transportation improvement projects proposed to be carried out by State and local governments over the next four years (2023-2026) in the seven county Southeastern Wisconsin Region. The TIP indicates the transportation system improvement priorities of State and local governments in Southeastern Wisconsin to be undertaken in each of the next four years. Transit, arterial highway, and other improvement projects proposed to be implemented in the next four years with Federal U.S. Department of Transportation funding should be included in this program.
Commission staff reviewed each project proposed to be listed in the TIP for consistency with the adopted year 2050 fiscally constrained transportation system (FCTS). The Commission staff also compared the total costs of the proposed projects in the TIP to estimates of available Federal, State, and local funding to ensure that available funding sources are adequate to implement the TIP. In addition, the Commission staff conducted an evaluation assessing the impact of the projects programmed in the TIP on minority populations and low-income populations—both positive and negative—and evaluating whether minority populations and low-income populations may be expected to receive a proportionate share of TIP benefits and not receive a disproportionate share of TIP negative impacts. An evaluation was also conducted of the contributions of the projects listed in the TIP toward achieving VISION 2050 performance goals and the established targets for the national performance measures.
The draft TIP along with public comment on the draft TIP will be reviewed by the Commission’s Advisory Committees for Transportation System Planning and Programming for the Kenosha, Milwaukee, Racine, Round Lake Beach-McHenry-Grayslake, Illinois-Wisconsin, and West Bend urbanized areas. These committees are comprised of local elected and appointed officials and agency representatives responsible for transportation system improvement, operation, and maintenance within each urbanized area.
The project-by-project listing of the draft 2023-2026 TIP includes for each project a brief description; estimated costs; estimated levels of Federal, State, and local funding; and the State or local unit of government sponsor responsible for project implementation.
