    The six-year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) serves as a draft work plan for the development of local transportation systems. The primary importance of the local TIP to Bellevue is that, in most instances, projects must be included to be eligible for state and federal grants.

    About projects included in the TIP

    Unlike the city’s funded 2021-2027 Capital Investment Program Plan and 12-year  Transportation Facilities Plan, the local TIP is not "revenue constrained," nor is the list of projects prioritized in any way. The city may include all projects that it would choose to implement within the six-year time frame if funding was available.

    The TIP is required by state law (RCW 35.77.010), which mandates that local jurisdictions annually adopt and submit to the state a six-year program of transportation improvements. The state Department of Transportation and the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC) use local TIPs as tools for coordinating the transportation programs of local jurisdictions with those of regional agencies. The PSRC monitors local TIPs for projects of regional significance, which need to be modeled for regional air quality conformity with federal standards, and to track projects supported by federal funds.
