FFY 2017-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) (as of 01/03/19) (.pdf)


The Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2017-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is the current list of federally-funded transportation projects in Dutchess County. Developed as part of our metropolitan transportation planning process, the TIP identifies capital and non‐capital transportation projects that are proposed for funding through federal highway and transit programs. The TIP must be updated at least every four years and be approved by DCTC and the Governor. In New York, the TIP update cycle coincides with the update of the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), which is typically done every three years. The TIP must adhere to the current federal transportation law, which authorizes the funding programs that support local transportation projects. 

The TIP is an essential product of the overall transportation planning process, since it is through the TIP that we commit to the implementation of transportation projects. Once a project is programmed on the TIP, a sponsor may proceed with activities such as detailed design, right-of-way acquisition, and construction. Projects on the TIP must be consistent with the goals and recommendations identified in Moving Dutchess 2, our current Transportation Plan.

Financial Constraint

The FAST Act requires that the TIP be financially constrained. Financial constraint is demonstrated through a financial plan that shows how the approved TIP can be implemented based on estimates of available current and future funding. For FFY 2017-2021, Dutchess County received a target of $121 million in federal and state highway funds and a target of $29 million in federal and state transit funds.

Programmed Funding

The FFY 2017-2021 TIP programs almost $86 million in federal transportation funding in Dutchess County: $32 million for highway projects and $54 million for transit projects. This total does not include federally-funded, multi-county maintenance projects that benefit Dutchess County. These NYSDOT-sponsored projects, including pavement and bridge preservation work, traffic signal replacements, highway sign improvements, guiderail maintenance, culvert replacements, and pavement marking initiatives, also use a share of our federal funding target. The TIP also includes projects for the MTA and the NYS Bridge Authority, as well as funding from federal non-transportation agencies and direct congressional authorizations.
