The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a ten-year work program that includes all regionally significant transportation projects in the MPO planning area. The TIP includes projects for all modes of transportation including roadway, public transportation, rail, aviation, bicycle and pedestrian. The TIP is updated every two years, as a subset of the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). All projects in the TIP must be consistent with the adopted Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).
The 2020-2029 TIP was adopted by the FBRMPO Board on October 24, 2019. The link to the document itself contains the originally adopted version in addition to all adopted amendments, as posted below. Amendments and modifications to the TIP below:

NCDOT and the STIP
Transportation Improvement Program funding is divided among the 14 Highway Divisions in North Carolina. The FBRMPO is part of both Divisions 13 (Buncombe and Madison) and 14 (Haywood and Henderson). Beyond highway funds, FBRMPO receives TIP funding for the transit systems in the urban areas and supplemental funding for planning studies and other locally administered programs.
