City of Mercer Island / City and Regional Projects / Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

.

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 of the Street Fund and other funding sources. The TIP covers City roadway, pedestrian, bicycle and other transportation projects.

State law requires that the TIP be updated and adopted by elected officials annually.  The City Council adopted the 2019-2024 TIP in June 2018.
