Transportation Improvement Program FY2021-FY2032

On July 23, 2020, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) Board approved the Fiscal Year 2021 Transportation Improvement Program (FY2021 TIP) for the five counties in Southeastern Pennsylvania. The new TIP programs approximately $15.4 billion in federal and state transportation funds to the region over the next 12 years (FY2021 to FY2032) with roughly half to be used for highway, bridge, and trail improvements, while the other half will fund transit capital improvements at the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) and Pottstown Area Rapid Transit (PART). Montgomery County is scheduled to receive approximately $965 million over the 12-year period for road, bridge, and trail projects; over half of that amount will be spent in the first four years. 

Federal and state legislation requires a TIP to be adopted by a region in order to receive federal and state transportation money. The TIP is the region’s capital budgeting tool and allocates funding for all phases of capital projects along interstate highways, state and local roads, and transit systems. It is updated every 2 years and must be fiscally constrained. All of the Montgomery County projects included in the new FY2021 TIP are contained in a number of local and regional comprehensive plans, including Montgomery County’s Montco 2040: A Shared Vision and DVRPC’s Connections 2045.
