Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

What is a TIP?

The TIP is a programming document that lists regionally-significant transportation
projects that will be undertaken on Oahu – including projects developed by the State
of Hawaii, the City and County of Honolulu, and the Honolulu Authority for Rapid
Transportation.

The TIP is a short-term, four-year implementation program for federally-assisted surface transportation projects. It identifies the public transit, highway, bicycle, and pedestrian projects that will receive federal transportation funds in the near future. The most recent policies and procedures for the TIP are linked here: Transportation Improvement Program Policies and Procedures.

The TIP is required to be financially constrained by year and include a financial plan that demonstrates which projects can be implemented using current revenue sources and which projects are to be implemented using proposed revenue sources.  The projects identified in the TIP must be consistent with the Oahu Regional Transportation Plan (ORTP).

The Special Maintenance Program (SMP) is a Hawaii DOT program that funds individual repair or maintenance projects that do not normally occur annually. It is a dynamic and needs-driven program, and is subject to change as needs change. The listed roadway preventative maintenance, rehabilitation, and resurfacing projects are only one aspect of the SMP. Qualified and priority SMP projects could receive federal funds should they become available.  Refer to the Hawaii DOT website for a list of SMP projects statewide.


Current TIP

The FFYs 2015-2018 TIP covers a period of four years (FFYs 2015-2018) and contains two additional years (FFYs 2019 and 2020) for information only. The TIP will be updated at least every four years, and revised as needed.

The FFYs 2015-2018 TIP was approved by the OahuMPO Policy Committee on August 18, 2014 and the Governor’s designee on August 18, 2014.  After approval by the OahuMPO and the Governor, the TIP is included without modification (directly or by reference) to the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).  Information on the STIP is located on the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation’s website.

FFYs 2015-2018 TIP Revisions

The TIP is a four-year program that identifies public transit, highway, bicycle, and pedestrian projects that are regionally significant or will receive Federal transportation funds in the near future. The OahuMPO Policy Board selects all projects on the TIP except those on the National Highway System.

As transportation projects are further defined, evaluated, refined, and implemented, changes to projects inevitably occur. In order for the TIP to reflect the realities of project development, the TIP process recognizes those inevitable changes and allows for periodic updates, called revisions. Revisions can be minor or major and the revision process reflects the commensurate impact of the revision.

Administrative Modification
A minor revision is referred to as an “administrative modification.” There are three conditions for a revision to qualify as an administrative modification:

  1. It must not affect the financial constraint of the TIP
  2. It must not result in the addition or deletion of another project from the TIP
  3. The implementing agency (DTS, DOT, or HART) must concur with the action.

Pre-approved Administrative Modification
A “Pre-approved Administrative Modification” is a sort of automatic revision that can be made to the TIP, provided the following are true:

  • The sum of regular formula FHWA funds programmed for Oahu is not reduced; and
  • The administrative modification does not change the design concept or scope of the project, or the prescribed environmental determination under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process.

The Policy Board is provided with copies of pre-approved administrative modifications.

Expedited Administrative Modifications

  • “Expedited Administrative Modifications” are still considered minor, but require Policy Board review and approval. Requests for expedited approval of administrative modifications are submitted directly to the Policy Board without prior review by the Advisory Committees or solicitation of public comment.

Amendment
Amendments are revisions to the TIP that involve a major change to a project in the TIP. TIP amendments are submitted to the Technical Advisory Committee, the Policy Board, and the Governor’s designee for action, and to the public for review and comment. Financial constraint is re-demonstrated, and the technical project evaluations are reevaluated.

Once action is taken on TIP Amendments, OahuMPO publishes a completely up-to-date TIP that has a comprehensive listing of projects.

The table below shows revisions to the TIP.
